When you write an assignment, it is very important to acknowledge the source of anyone else's ideas that you have used or mentioned in your work. You need to reference any direct quotations, facts and figures, as well as the ideas and theories that you use. The reader is then able to find the original source of the information to check it or follow up a point.

It is very important that you check with your lecturers and tutors to determine which referencing style is preferred for your unit.

Information on referencing can be found in the Library's Referencing LibGuide. The Learning Centre also provides valuable information on referencing and the part it plays in academic integrity.
