Your School may produce a guide or a set of standards for referencing, which are often included in your student handbook. Your tutor will be able to advise on the type of referencing style which is expected. The Library & Learning Centre also produces step-by-step guides for some subjects by request (notably Medicine & Nursing).

We can also provide referencing training within the curriculum, by negotiation with module leaders. We can also advise on how to reference specific documents if you aren’t sure how.
