Getting Started with APA Referencing

Hello NPD 100,

As we start talking about referencing this week, it’s important to understand why we reference before we learn how to do it. Citation management software such as Refworks (and others) are only tools – without a sound knowledge of the principles of referencing and the main elements of an APA citation, you’ll get stuck. It’s like being able to drive a car without knowing the road rules.

Check out this video by Massey University (New Zealand). It’s 14 minutes well spent and will give you a good background for tomorrow’s lecture.
