It’s Tutorial Thursday! In this series, we explore APA’s extensive library of video tutorials, available on YouTube. Please feel free to link or embed videos or playlists in library websites or LibGuides, course management systems, or other locations where students, faculty, and researchers will find them.

For today’s edition of Tutorial Thursday, we’d like to share a recording of one of our APA Style CENTRAL® webinars: Teaching With APA Style CENTRAL. You’ll find this recording on our new APA Style CENTRAL YouTube Channel, where we plan to add recordings of our other webinars, and other materials as they become available.

We will be offering additional, live sessions of this webinar again early in 2017. When the schedule is ready, we will post the details here and on our website.
