Citing Sources in Digital Assignments: Overview
What is a digital assignment?
Digital assignments can be any assignment that you create that is not a research paper (e.g., essay, annotated bibliography, literature review or lab report).
Examples of digital assignments are creating websites, infographics, videos, and PowerPoint presentations.
Do I have to use APA and MLA to cite my sources in digital assignments?
The APA and MLA publication manuals contain guidelines for citing your sources in research essays, not digital assignments. Digital assignments don't require the use of standard APA and MLA format.
Unless your instructor specifically tells you that you must use formal APA or MLA citation style when citing sources in your digital assignments, then you may choose to cite your sources by following the Seneca Libraries recommendations below.
Always confirm assignment expectations with your instructor first.
