How to Harvard Reference Effectively.

This morning we had a tutorial on how to Harvard reference effectively. Harvard referencing is a style of referencing, commonly used by university students, to cite information sources.

There are two types of citations:

In-text citations are used when directly quoting or paraphrasing a source. They are located in the body of the work and contain a fragment of the full citation.

Here is an example of an In-text citation:

“After that I lived like a young rajah in all the capitals of Europe…” (Fitzgerald, 2004).

Reference lists are located at the end of the work and display full citations for sources used in the assignment.

Here is an example of a reference listing:

Fitzgerald, F. (2004). The great Gatsby. New York: Scribner.

Harvard referencing isn’t difficult but there is a lot to remember so we had to complete a task which asked us to Harvard reference a book, online newspaper article, website and piece of art from a website. Here were my Harvard referenced links:

Website

Online newspaper article

Vicki A. Benge, (2017). Corporate Branding vs. Product Branding. [online] Available   at: <http://smallbusiness.chron.com/corporate-branding-vs-product-branding-37269.html>  (Accessed Thursday 9th March 2017)

With Harvard referencing, you should indent additional lines from the first line, as this allows the reader to see the name clearly. Unfortunately, WordPress isn’t allowing me to do this but I am able to do so.
