RefWorks

RefWorks

If you are using the University's Harvard Referencing handbook you should select Harvard - University of Lincoln (2nd edition) from the 'Output Style Manager'.

IMPORTANT: The bibliography generated by RefWorks will follow the main principles of the guide; however, you are responsible for checking it as the output of each information source will depend on the information exported from the library website, database or Google Scholar.  It is recommended that you check for capitalisation, spelling and punctuation, as well as the format of a source.
