Referencing support

You are not alone

You are not alone

Stuck with referencing? We are happy to help. Here are some things you can try…

 …read the short guide provided at the start of your course. If you haven’t got one, get one from the askalibrarian desk or download one from our referencing page. Many of your queries can be answered by look at page 2, 3 or 4 of your guide. 

…use the Cite Them Right Online website. See our previous blog post about this one! the excellent Cite Them Right tutorial on referencing, avoiding plagiarism and acknowledging the work of others in your assignments.

…check the referencing topic on our FAQs site. Lots of students have the same questions as you.

…take a look at your subject guide. For example, Education students may want to take a look at the Government resources section of the School of Education subject guide, which includes full Harvard references to the National Curricula, EYFS and other frequently cited documents.

Still stuck? Email us at, or try LiveChat, available from 1-4pm, Monday to Friday.
