"In-text citation" means that you refer to (or cite) the ideas or words of another as soon as you write about them in your paper. There are several ways to do this: using quotation marks for exact words, summarizing or condensing without changing the meaning, and paraphrasing or using your own words.
Here are specific examples of ways to handle in-text citation in APA format.

Watch this video to learn how to navigate OneSearch to find materials available through the University Library.
Use the Advanced Search feature to help you find specific items by title or author name, material type or publication date range.
To access the advanced search feature, click the OneSearch image on the Library's homepage and then the "Advanced" search link next to the Basic Search bar. A set of radio buttons gives you the option to search just the CSUN Collections, Course Reserves, or All CSU Libraries, which includes items you can order through CSU+ or InterLibrary Loan. You can search by Title, Author/contributor, Subject or ISBN, or all fields, and can combine multiple search statements. You can limit your search by Material Type (Books, Articles, Journals, Images, or Audio-visual), but language, and by date or date range.
Don't lose track of relevant articles or books. Use Pin It feature in OneSearch -- make sure to log in with your CSUN user id and password (same as portal or Canvas). Items you pin will remain attached to your account and appear every time you log in.
From publisher's website: "This in-depth encyclopedic collection of articles defines the current state of Deaf Studies at an international level. This new encyclopedia shifts away from the 'Medical/Pathological Model', and instead has the focus on deaf people as members of a distinct cultural group with a distinct and vibrant community and way of being."

Google Scholar offers the ability to link directly to University Library resources. Enabling this feature will allow you to search in Google Scholar and obtain the full text of articles and other electronic materials carried by the University Library. You only need to set up this configuration once for each computer you use in order to retrieve University Library resources through Google Scholar. See Using Google Scholar and Library Resources for instructions on configuring Google Scholar and Library Resources.
