  • Referencing guides

    The University Learning and Teaching Committee recently approved 4 referencing styles for use by undergraduates at Swansea. Library staff have produced guides to these which are avaible for students in their Library support module in Blackboard. The styles are APA (an author date style), Vancouver (numbered), MHRA (footnotes) and Oscola (a legal style).

    We will be doing a drop in session on referencing in the Vancouver style on Friday 9th Nov 12-1 in Training room 1 in the library. If your students need help with referencing contact us (scieng@swansea.ac.uk) to arrange a training session or suggest that they contact their subject team for individual help.
