How to Cite a Presentation or Lecture
There are many times when you will attend a lecture or presentation by someone who is a specialist in a field of study. That person may be another teacher or a leader in the community. If you are using information from their presentation or lecture, it needs to be cited in your Works Cited List or Bibliography.
The information yo will need:
Name of the person or people giving the lecture or presentation
Title of the lecture or presentation
The Place of the lecture or presentation
The Date of the lecture or presentation
Okay, so I'm going to get a little silly here and create a fictional lecture.
Mr. Darby Lunius will be giving a lecture on "First Contact Etiquette with Visiting Extraterrestrials" at the Veteran's Auditorium in Outland, Massachusetts on April 1, 2015. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door. Contact Filmore Almond at 718-555-3701 for tickets.
If someone had attended this lecture and used information from that lecture in a report, the citation would look like this:
Lunius, Darby. "First Contact Etiquette with Visiting Extraterrestrials". Veteran's Auditorium, Outland, MA 1 Apr 2015. Lecture.
