On Track: Reference using referencing tools (In person) In-Person

★★★ advanced


How to reference properly is something that causes students a lot of stress – but it doesn’t need to be difficult. This session will introduce you to different referencing tools and software that can help you save time, avoid common mistakes with referencing, and allow you to make the most of your sources. We will also cover the practicalities of referencing AI use.

Key areas covered

  • Constructing references in the departmental style
  • Using reference management software and other referencing tools
  • Learn how to reference AI use 

Supporting resources

  • Prepare by taking a look at the 'Referencing tools' section of our Skills at Library support and find out your departmental referencing style.
  • Download and set up Zotero (or another reference management software of your choice!)
  • Workshop activity: Create references for the 6 sources you've found previously or the list of sources provided (available via Moodle).
