My lecturer told us to reference our information sources when we submit our assignment. How do I reference? Why is it so important anyway?

When you submit your assignment, you are required to show where you obtained the information you have used by referencing your sources. What is referencing? How do you reference? This section will answer these questions and more.

In the following pages, you'll learn:

  • what referencing is and why it is important
  • how to reference
  • how to organise references.
  • how to use non-English information

To continue, choose a Reference topic from the side menu or use Next and Back buttons to work through this section step-by-step.
