Where can I get help?

For more information about referencing, there are other sections of Referen©ite that can help you:

  • Quick©ite provides fast access to specific referencing formats and examples.
  • Tools provides links to online tutorials, guides and wizards that can help you correctly reference your sources.
  • Doctor©ite has answers to students' frequently asked questions about referencing.


If you can't find the information you need in Referen©ite there are a number of other options you can try:

  • Ask your lecturer or tutor – these are the staff that will be marking your assignments so they will be able to tell you what they expect.
  • Check your departmental handbooks and course outlines – often referencing information and examples are included in the publications that are specific to your course or department.
  • Look at the resources by subject pages from the University Library website. These pages may direct you to faculty-recommended referencing guides.


If you are a University of Auckland student you might also:

  • Contact your Subject Librarian – Subject Librarians can often point you in the right direction to find information about your referencing style.
  • Check the University of Auckland's guidelines on academic integrity – here you can find more information on the University's advice, guidelines and procedures relating to academic integrity.
