Access to HE and Foundation Programme: Referencing

A guide for all students studying Access or Foundation across any of our campuses.

Guide to referencing

It’s important to reference all your sources of information. Various systems of citation and referencing are used around the World, but the University of Derby uses the Harvard Referencing System, as defined by the book and online resource Cite Them Right. Use the link below to access the online version. We also have print copies of the book on the Study Skills shelves in the Library.

Referencing Exercises

The document below contains information (source titles, author names etc.) and links to the catalogue and/or external links (note that for illustrative purposes some of the links may not work!). Please open the document and work through the source examples provided, preparing references and in-text citations for each one, on a separate document. You may want  to order them as you would do for a Reference List. When you have finished, it is recommended that you save your work to your U drive.
