Citing and referencing

This page contains information on tools that can be used to help with citing sources and creating reference lists in assignments and articles.

Please note: The Library can offer only general referencing advice. For detailed guidance, students should refer to their course or module study guide, or speak to their School or supervisor. Students can also seek help from the Learning Development Service (undergraduates) or the Graduate School (postgraduates).

The university's Learning Development Service has developed this online guide to referencing, covering a number of different citation styles:
