Referencing at CIT

Information on referencing styles used at CIT including Harvard and American Psychology Association (APA).

What is referencing?

Referencing is the way you acknowledge the source of information or ideas used in your assignments.  You are telling the reader who is the author of that information and providing enough details for them to locate and access the source.

 

There are many different referencing styles that have been created for this purpose.  At CIT the referencing styles used are:

 

·        Harvard (AGPS) and

 

·        American Psychology Association (APA).

 

Please check with your teacher which referencing style you need to use for your assignments.

If you have any questions or need assistance in relation to referencing please contact the Liaison Librarian at your CIT Library.
