Referencing Introduction

When you use information or ideas created by other people in your essays or assignments, you need to let readers know you have done this.

Copying something written by another person and putting it into your assignment as if it is your own work is known as PLAGIARISM.  You are not allowed to do this in college.

There are two basic types of referencing system:

Author Date  This is also known as the Harvard Referencing System

Numbered Notes  Such as The British Journal of Nutrition style

Cite them right online

Endnote

Endnote Online is a tool which allows you to collect, organise and format references when carrying out course assignments or research.  It is not a referencying style, it is software which allows you to work with a range of referencing styles.
