Lectures and Class Notes

This format can be used if citing a set of notes from a lecture (e.g. PowerPoint slides provided by the instructor). 
 
If you want to cite something from a lecture that was not included in a set of lecture notes, you would use the format for a personal communication (see the format for an interview, for example).
 
Reference list:

Author Surname, First Name. "Lecture or Presentation Title." Other Pertinent Information. URL.  Access date is optional.

 
Example:

Pastern, Blaise. “The Falling Snow in The Dead.” Utica College ENG 334, 23 May 2017, engage.utica.edu. Accessed 12 Aug. 2017.

 
In-text citation:

      (Pastern)
