Library Information Sources for Business Students

Virtual Help Zone (Mon, Tues, Wed 12-1pm)


Citing your sources (also called referencing) is an essential part of your academic work and is explained fully on our library referencing webpage. The Business School uses Brookes Harvard as its house style, so this is what you should use for your assignments.

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.

The Library also has a downloadable Word/PDF guide to citing your references using this style.

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. 

The playlist opposite is a series of short videos on Harvard referencing at Oxford Brookes, presented by your librarian.
