Quick guide - How to USE IT
•There are various ways of setting out references / bibliographies for an assignment.
NOTE •Before you write your list of references/bibliography check with your
lecturer/tutor for the bibliographic style preferred by the Academic
•The following are examples of one style previously known as the Harvard style based on AGPS style but now revised by Snooks & Co, 2002. The style is based on the author-date system for books, articles and “non-books”.
•Your bibliography should identify an item (e.g. book, journal article, cassette tape, film, or internet site) in sufficient detail so that others may identify it and consult it.
•Your bibliography should appear at the end of your essay/report with entries listed alphabetically.
•If you have used sources from the Internet, these should be listed in your bibliography.
