Getting Started

Whenever you use someone's ideas in a paper or project, it's important to give them credit by citing them. This short video will show the different ways to use other people's ideas in your projects and papers.

Make sure that you are using the appropriate citation style for your coursework More information about three main citation styles can be found on the tabs to the left of the screen. No matter the style, citations always have two parts. There is the in-text citation that identifies where you used someone's ideas in your work and the full information about the source you used in the bibliography of your paper or project.

Manage Your References with Mendeley


Mendeley is a reference manager that allows you manage, read, share, annotate and cite your research papers. You can also manage your references in the Mendeley Web Library, which allows you to access the items in your Mendeley library from any web browser. You can achieve many of the core Mendeley features (such as uploading new references, reading papers, highlighting and annotating) from any device with internet access, without the need to install any software.
