Struggling with Harvard referencing?

If you’re still getting to grips with using Harvard referencing, you may like to know that there is a new guide to Harvard Referencing which may help. The new guide is a revised version of the existing document but is now easier to read and has been updated with more contemporary examples. It will demonstrate how to reference the more commonly used sources in your assignments, such as books, journals and websites and will also provide you with explanations about the different ways to reference such as using direct quotations and paraphrasing.

Don’t worry though if you’re using (or even continue to use) the previous guide issued in September 2011; the new guide does not change any of the principles or conventions for referencing, we just think it is a better format for helping you to navigate the rules of referencing.
