MLA does not provide exact guidance for handling citations and a Works Cited page in PowerPoint. However, there are still best-practices recommended by Purdue Owl and several universities.

Labeling figures and tables is more straight forward.

The easiest way to handle citations and references is to follow the same rules you would for a paper, and do an in-text citation within the sentence or bullet point, and have a Works Cited page on your last slide.

If for design reasons, you would prefer to put a complete reference on each slide, you can do that and omit a separate Works Cited page. However, keep in mind that if you refer to more than one source on a single slide, including the references on that slide will make it very text-heavy.

In addition to the examples below, I've included a link to Purdue Owl's MLA guide, Holgate Library's PowerPoint in MLA format guide, and a link to our Cite MLA Style guide.
