Q. I would like to cite an on demand video, can you tell how to do so?

Hi Melissa:

The format for citing a streaming video using APA style is:

Publisher (Producer). (Publication Year). Title of the video: Capitalize the first word in the subtitle [Format]. Retrieved from Database Name http://www.fullwebsiteaddressofvideo.com


Granada Media (Producer). (1994).Children of the holocaust. [Streaming Video]. Retrieved from Films on Demand http://cmich.idm.oclc.org/login?url=digital.films.com/PortalPlaylists.aspx?aid=1877&xtid=5352

You'll find more information for citing electronic resources at the OWL at Purdue web site (see link below).

Please let us know if you need further assistance.
