# How to cite an online lecture in MLA?

I'm using biblatex-mla to cite in MLA style, and I need to cite what a lecturer said in an online lecture. This lecture was conducted through Zoom, and there is no URL as such. I have read the documentation, but there is no mention of how to cite such a source.

How should I cite an online lecture?

I'd have said, use @misc and add fields so that things look OK, but there is a small issue with @misc entries in mla-new at the moment (https://github.com/jmclawson/biblatex-mla/issues/23), so I suggest you take @online.

The following seems to give acceptable results

\documentclass[american]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}

\usepackage[style=mla-new, backend=biber]{biblatex}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@online{elk,
author    = {Anne Elk},
title     = {Lecture on a Theory on Brontosauruses},
date      = {1972-11-16},
publisher = {University of Python},
location  = {Monty},
note      = {Online lecture},
}
\end{filecontents}

If the recording of the lecture is available via some route, you may want to include the relevant information in the note field as well.
