To help with understanding referencing styles we have produced six referencing handbooks. PDF versions of these are available from this page, and print copies of Harvard, APA, OSCOLA and MHRA are available in the Library.
We are happy for external education institutions to link to our referencing materials. If you do link, please email to request permission so that we know who is using our materials: email@example.com
Contact your Academic Subject Librarian for help with referencing and for advice on avoiding plagiarism.
Reference management software can help you to store, organise and share your references and generate citations and reference lists.
