Referencing

  • Citing your sources (also called referencing) is an essential part of your academic work and is explained fully on our library referencing webpage.
  • The Library also has a printed guide to citing your references using the Harvard (Author-Date) system, available as a word file or PDF.
  • Cite Them Right Online shows you how to reference a wide range of sources (books, journal articles, web sites) using exactly the same Harvard style used at Brookes.
  • Endnote is a tool for storing and organising your references, and it will also work with Word or Pages to create a fully formatted bibliography from your reference library. 

Library help with your dissertation


  • The Library as a research tool for English Language and Linguistics students - this guide is aimed at pre-dissertation students, with advice on resources we offer to help you embark on your dissertation. You will need to login to access this guide.

Read the guide Applying for admission to the Bodleian Library first, then visit the Library to obtain an application form.
