What is referencing?

Referencing acknowledges the ideas and information sources you have used in assignments.

Quotes, facts and figures, ideas and theories must be referenced. If you include parts of someone else's work without referencing them, you could be accused of plagiarism.

Please explore this page for referencing information. You can also view the Referencing LibGuide for more help.
