APA referencing

Guide to APA referencing for students of Manukau Institute of Technology

Referencing tips

It is important to guide your reader back to the sources of the information you have used, and to give credit to the person who created the information in the first place.

What to look for:

  • Who created the information?
  • When did they post or publish it?
  • What is the name of the book, article, picture ....  that you used?
  • Where does the reader get it from (url or publisher information)?

On this page are some useful tools and examples of reference lists to help you to cite and reference your sources.

As you reference, be aware of copyright and how it works.

Find re-usable information

A Creative Commons search is an easy way to find images by license.  Tip: Choose one of the options before you search.

Endnote for research

Endnote is a powerful tool for degree or post-graduate degree study.  Ask at a library reception desk for the Endnote cd-rom.
