APA Format & Citation Style, 6th edition

About Citing Works of Art


Online Map:
Title of work [Map]. (Date or date of latest update {Year, Month Day }). Retrieved from URL

Online Image/Database:
Artist's last name, artist’s initials. (Year). Title of work. Retrieved from {Name of database} database 

Online Image/Web site;
Artist's last name, artist’s initials. (Year). Title of work [Online image]. Retrieved from URL

For each type of source in this guide, both the general form and an example  will be provided.

The following format will be used:

In-Text Citation (Paraphrase) - entry that appears in the body of your paper when you express the ideas of a researcher or author using your own words.  For more tips on paraphrasing check out The OWL at Purdue.

In-Text Citation (Quotation) - entry that appears in the body of your paper after a direct quote.

References - entry that appears at the end of your paper.

Information on citing and several of the examples were drawn from the APA Manual (6th ed.).

Numbers in parentheses refer to specific pages in the manual.

Helpful Tip!

No author?

If you are unable to find the author/artist then use the title in your signal phrase or the first word or two of the title in the parentheses.

No date?

If there is no date available then use the abbreviation "n.d." (for "no date").


We would like to thank the Himmelfarb Heath Sciences Library at George Washington University for letting UWF Libraries reuse and remix their guide on APA Citation Style.
