Library staff run training on MMU Harvard referencing throughout the year. Topics covered include:

  • Why you need to cite and reference
  • Variations in the way you need to cite and how to correctly format your citations
  • How to format the references for the key sources you will use for your assignments
  • Gaining familiarity with the MMU Harvard style in order to keep organised and save time
