    Can I do this?

    And if so, how would I put this in the bibliography?

    At my uni it's not reccommended in the same way that you shouldn't cite from a book. It's better to cite from the original source because it's apprantly less biased.

    I quoted lectures last year. I did it as 'Michael Mullet, ‘Early Modern Europe: A ‘society of orders’ or ‘a class society’?’, Hist121 lecture series, Lancaster University, 9th October 2007', so the lecturer's name, the title of the lecture, course name, University, and date. They accepted it as perfectly fine.

    I got away with doing it in first year, they accepted it but pointed out that its not really good practice, you should use published works. I referenced it in a similar way to Teao the Cat. Maybe try asking whoever runs the course or someone from your department about it

    I think it depends on the Lecturer who did the slides.

    One of my lecturers doesn't mind at all as he says that the stuff he puts on his slides is up to date research which he has carried out so it's perfectly valid to use, others don't recommend it at all.

    I'd check with the particular lecturer who will be marking the coursework.

    It doesn't look particularly good when, with hundreds of books in the library, you have to use your lecturer's notes.

    I was told that you can do this, in a similar way as you would a book but most Universities will not accept it as a good quality source and it is not always necessary if it is from your own universities lectures.

    If what you're using from the slide is in the lecturer's words, why not just change it into your own words? If it's a quote from an academic book on the slide, I quote the book it came from. I never quote actual lecture slides.

    Don't do it. It's as bad as citing Wikipedia...

    I wouldn't say so. I'm sure lecturers are much more qualified and recognised than the randomers adding wikipedia pages to the 'net.
