Referencing and Bibliographies

It is important to always acknowledge the work of others.

When you conduct research and gather information, make sure you keep a record of your sources to include in a bibliography or reference list. At Scots All Saints we use the Harvard system of referencing. 

For help to create a bibliography using the Harvard system, check the Scots All Saints Referencing Guide available in the library or use the Online Referencing tool below.
