Referencing in your UTAS assignments
Step 1. Before you use this library guide check: Does your School have its own referencing guide? To find out ask your lecturer or tutor.
Step 2. If you are using this guide or another guide and you are still unsure about a particular citation, it is always best to check with your tutor or lecturer - they will be marking your work after all.
Step 3. Refer to the Style Manual. UTAS Library holds print Style Manuals (complete guides) for the following referencing styles: Harvard, APA, MLA, Chicago, Vancouver & Turabian. You can find these manuals on the shelves in UTAS Library branches. To locate these books please refer to the other pages in this guide.
Step 4. If you have followed steps 1 - 3 and you still need referencing help contact staff in Student Learning, or ask at a library enquiries desk, or fill in this web form: Ask a Librarian
At the end of your assignment, essay or project you are required to include a reference list containing the full details of each source. The list should be in alphabetical order and include the author/editor, date, title and publication information. References over one line long should use a hanging indent to indent the second and following lines.
