    Hi @michael, yet another question (thanks for being so available!). For Blog Post #4, I am writing about my author’s credentials. She is a professor at University of Michigan, and I am using content from their website to describe her credentials. This is how I cited it:
    Biography. (2017). Retrieved from:

    Not even sure if that is correct/complete, and also, if it is….how do I cite it within my post? Would it just be (Biography, 2017)? Thanks!


    • @dianarivers This is from the Purdue OWL site. This may be the way to go:

      Nonperiodical Web Document or Report

      List as much of the following information as possible (you sometimes have to hunt around to find the information; don’t be lazy. If there is a page like, and somepage.htm doesn’t have the information you’re looking for, move up the URL to

      Author, A. A., & Author, B. B. (Date of publication). Title of document. Retrieved from http://Web address

      Angeli, E., Wagner, J., Lawrick, E., Moore, K., Anderson, M., Soderland, L., & Brizee, A. (2010, May 5). General format. Retrieved from
      NOTE: When an Internet document is more than one Web page, provide a URL that links to the home page or entry page for the document. Also, if there isn’t a date available for the document use (n.d.) for no date.

      To cite a YouTube video, the APA recommends following the above format.

      • @dianarivers Doh! I forgot the in text citation part.

        again, from OWL:

        Electronic Sources

        If possible, cite an electronic document the same as any other document by using the author-date style.
