Need a referencing refresher?

Would you like to brush up on your referencing skills?

Book in to a QUT Library workshop!

In our Practical Referencing Workshops you will learn to identify the elements of a reference in some of the common resource types, and get a chance to put together references. APA and Harvard referencing styles will be demonstrated in these workshops. Before you attend, view the short Referencing Made Simple lesson which covers the basics of referencing.

Remember to check QUT cite|write for citing and referencing examples for the four QUT styles – APA, Harvard, Legal and Vancouver.

If you can’t find a specific referencing example on QUT cite|write, you can always build your own reference using parts from other examples. It’s important to be consistent.

If you have any questions about referencing, feel free to contact us.

 

Cite it!

QUT cite|write is your go to guide for citing and referencing at QUT. Four referencing styles are covered in this guide: APA, Harvard, Legal and Vancouver. The style you use will depend on the faculty you’re in and your lecturer’s preference. Check out the “Getting started” section for an overview of your style.

QUT Library is offering workshops on referencing in weeks five and six. They are now open for booking!

Practical referencing workshops

Ever had trouble working out exactly what it is that you’re trying to reference? Still not sure where to find all the bits and pieces you need to create a reference? This workshop will help you get more familiar with different types of resources and how to reference them, including articles, websites, reports, ebooks and more. The APA and Harvard styles are demonstrated.

It will be assumed you know the basics of referencing, so view the short Referencing Made Simple lesson before the workshop. You can also revisit the basics of referencing with this short video from QUT Library.

Go for gold!

The Winter Olympics start this week, the same as Orientation Week here at QUT. What a coincidence! Just like the Winter Olympians, to succeed at university you must prepare and work hard. QUT Library is offering several Library 101 workshops so you can prepare yourself for the upcoming semester. Practice your referencing, polish your searching skills and discover all of the services and resources available at QUT Library.

If you are aiming for a gold medal this semester, you can also have a look at study skills workshops and library tours. These will help you develop your study skills and, you guessed it, prepare yourself for getting the most out of your classes and assignments.

Preparing for university, and the Olympics, also means thinking about your health and wellbeing. QUT Library’s video streaming service, Kanopy, has over 300 videos related to sport and fitness. Plus you can watch Dr. Anna Baranowsky explain How to create a wellness mind map or find The Secret of Life Wellness.

You can also contact HiQ to get assistance as you (just like the Winter Olympians!) strive for gold this semester!
