In academic writing, it's essential that you cite (state) your sources of information and ideas.To ensure readers know where you found the information you must include references. Visit our referencing and plagiarism tutorial for more information about why you must reference.
In the Library there are many different ways we support students with referencing:
Harvard Referencing factsheets
Download and print these guides - you'll also find copies in the Library:
Referencing: the Harvard Way
Referencing: Law Resources (Harvard)
Law students should visit the Legal Referencing page for referencing resources.
Psychology students should refer to their Thinking and Writing Guide. Minor amendments, along with the full guide, are also available on the BSc (Hons) Psychology unit on myCourse.
