Classes on citing and referencing

We run free sessions about Citing and Referencing (Heriot-Watt staff and students only).  There are sessions on Harvard, IEEE and APA citing and referencing - make sure you sign up for the style you need for your assignment.  Please check with your supervisor or lecturer if you're not sure which style to use.


If you are a lecturer and would like to arrange a citing and referencing class for your students, your Liaison Librarian will be happy to teach this.  We're also able to run sessions for small groups of students, if any student wants to arrange a meeting for their project group, study group, or group of friends.
