APA RULES FOR THE REFERENCE CITATIONS IN TEXT
APA utilizes a system of brief referencing in the text of a paper, whether one is paraphrasing or providing a direct quotation from another author’s work. Citations in the text usually consist of the name of the author(s) and the year of publication. The page number is added when utilizing a direct quotation.
Indirect Quotation with Parenthetical Citation

Indirect Quotation with Author as Part of the Narrative
LaRue (2007) identified intellectual freedom and patron confidentiality as two key values held historically by libraries.
Direct Quotation with Parenthetical Citation
