If you’re looking for an open educational resource for learning APA Style citation, this tutorial may be for you! This 30-45 minute self-paced, interactive tutorial created by the University of Alberta Library provides an introduction to APA citation guidelines, 7th edition. The tutorial also explores why citation is important and elements of common source types. The APA Style Citation Tutorial is designed with undergraduate Education students in mind, but as an OER it's available for everyone to use and adapt!

Published through Open Education Alberta, the APA Style tutorial is the first time the open textbook and OER publishing service has been used to develop library teaching materials through the Pressbooks platform. The tutorial was created and published during the shift to increased online learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic and local budget cuts to education funding, which emphasized our goals of sustainability and openness for the tutorial. The APA Style tutorial was recently featured in an article in Open Shelf magazine, which discusses the development of the tutorial.
