Module 2 - Understanding your reading list

Your lecturer will often provide a list of references (sometimes called a bibliography) that you will be expected to read.

In this module you will learn how to distinguish between the different types of references (also known as citations or sources) on a reading list.

References may be books, chapters of books, journal articles, newspaper articles, government reports, papers from conferences or even websites.

It is important that you can identify the different reference types so that you can find them in the Library catalogue.
