TUNKU ABDUL RAHMAN UNIVERSITY COLLEGE HARVARD REFERENCING SYSTEM 1.0 INTRODUCTION Referencing or citing means acknowledging the source of information and ideas you have used in your assignments (e.g. essay, report, project, research paper, etc.). This is a standard practice at all institutions of higher learning including Tunku Abdul Rahman (TAR) University College. This learning guide on Harvard referencing system was developed based on the following references: Curtin University Library 2007, Harvard Referencing . Fisher, D & Hanstock, T 1998, Citing References . Saunders, M, Lewis, P & Thornhill, A 2005, Research Methods for Business Students. University of Bournemouth 2005, Citing References . University of South Australia 2006, Referencing using the Harvard author–date system. 2.0 THE IMPORTANCE OF CITING REFERENCES The following are reasons why referencing is needed: to acknowledge debts to other writers to demonstrate the body/scope of knowledge upon which your research is based on to enable all those who read your work to locate the sources easily More importantly, by using appropriate references, you will show the breadth and quality of your assignments and avoid plagiarism. For further details on plagiarism, please refer to the TAR University College guide on Avoiding Plagiarism . 3.0 REFERENCING SYSTEM The two most common types of referencing systems used are: i.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
