IEEE Referencing



We also have a subscription to Cite Them Right Online to help you reference effectively. Cite Them Right Online (CTRO) is a comprehensive referencing resource. It will help you to cite and reference just about any source. There is also information on the basics of referencing, top 10 referencing tips, understanding plagiarism and lots more.

A useful feature of the site allows you to create your own references by copying the layout of a record, which you can then email to yourself or cut and paste into your document. 

An accompanying textbook called ‘Cite Them Right’ is also available in the library. 

We also have a quick guide we have created that covers the most commonly used resources which you may find helpful.  However, we would encourage you to use CTRO whenever possible.
