Nontraditional Sources: Basic Entry for Nontraditional Sources

Last updated 5/7/2017


Visual: The words “Walden University Writing Center” and the Walden University Writing Center logo on a blank page of a notebook with a pencil. The slogan “Your writing, grammar, and APA experts” appears. The screen shifts to present the words “Non-traditional Sources” with the title “Basic Reference Entry for Nontraditional Sources” underneath.  

Audio: Music plays.


Visual: Slide changes to one titled "Reference Basics for Uncommon Reference." On the body of the slide are five text boxes. Each box contains one item. From left to right they read Author, Date, Title information, [Format description], Publication information. Above [Format Description] is another textbox that reads: The “new” stuff

Audio: Uncommon reference, something that's maybe out of the ordinary, your information is going to add a component, if you will. When you're writing up the reference for something that's a little bit different, you're still going touse the author, the date, the title information and the publication information. The quote, unquote, new stuff is what's going to go in there though, and that's going to be kind of a description of the format you're using. So it might be a video, it might be a blog post, it might be a discussion post from a classroom. It might be your course syllabus. Whatever that might be, it will fit between that title information and the publication information, and it will follow -- a description of the format in brackets and notice these brackets, that's kind of important because that's going to also appear in that reference list.


Visual: Slide changes to notebook with Walden logo from introduction. Text reads: “Walden University Writing Center. Questions? E-mail
