Citing Emails, Interviews, Lectures, etc. in APA Format

Emails, letters, memos, telephone conversations, lectures, course materials handed out in class or provided via Blackboard, and personal interviews are considered personal communications in APA. This type of communication can be difficult to provide recoverable data; therefore, these types of communication are not included in the Reference list. Cite personal communications within the body of your paper only.


In an interview, Sally Shoefeld explained the treatment for an accident victim (personal communication, December 18, 2011).

Note: For more information about personal communciations, see the APA Manual, 7th edition.

    1. Students are to complete a form if it is their first time visiting the bank for the school year, if not, the librarian will look through the forms to find theirs. Library staff will also consult the notebook to see if the student's name is on the professor's roster.

  • Blank forms are located in the folder in the top tray on top of the file cabinet in the test bank storage room.
  • Students will be asked to print the test name and number on the designated column and then sign the form.
  • Library staff will intial and date the form once the test has been returned.

    2. While reviewing the test, students must:

  • Remain in the library.
  • Remember they are not allowed to make photocopies or take pictures of the tests with your phone.
  • Do not write on any of the tests or answer sheets.
