I didn't see anything about APA in this video. It was funny and presented useful concepts for searching databases, but no APA.

An effective visual display of locating different elements of a citation and putting them in order for a Works Cited page. Unfortunately only APA is included, but it may help students understand the why and how of citation crafting.
