  • 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.
