To provide full details of your source information you should provide a reference list or bibliography at the end of your assignment. A reference list refers to all the books, articles and web sites that you actually referred to in your assignment. A bibliography refers to all the material you read in preparation for your assignment, even those you did not provide direct or indirect quotations from. Your lecturer or tutor will instruct you on whether your assignments require a reference list or a bibliography. The reference list or bibliography must be set out in the particular format required by your discipline or department. Below is an example of a reference list that would be attached to the end of your assignment.
In a reference list,
sources are listed alphabetically by the surname of the author
when reference is made to more than one work by and author/s, list them chronologically, ending with the most recent work.
