Referencing

the easy way

Why Do We Reference?

- To avoid plagiarisim by giving credit to the original source of an idea, piece of information or resource.
- To support your work with the authoritative work of another author
- To demonstrate your knowledge and familiarity with a topic that you have researched.
- To help readers of your work to find the original source of information or ideas that you have used.

How Do We Reference?

As you do your research, keep a list of all the sources that you use.

Add your found websites to your browser Favourites or use a social bookmarking tool such as Diigo or Delicious.com
