Referencing is a key skill for academic writing at all levels and we can help you navigate the referencing system used within your programme. 

You can begin to understand referencing and how to avoid plagiarism by accessing the Skills4Study Referencing and Understanding Plagiarism module.

You can also check out Cite Them Right, available under Find Databases in LibrarySearch. This provides citation and reference structures for Harvard, APA, MLA and more. Make sure that you find out which referencing style your programme uses first.

Reference management tools

These are a great way to save, store and organise references and/or bibliographies for your assignments. They allow you to create reading lists in the referencing style of your choice at the click of a button.

Here are some guides to reference management and citation tools that we support:

Cite them right – This tool is very important yet the ease of use means I have one thing less to worry about, I feel like the referencing master now but it’s down to this amazing resource offered by the library.
