Referencing & Avoiding Plagiarism


Reference Management

Getting Started with Mendeley


The reference management product Mendeley allows for references to be gathered together from online sources and can also be used to store PDFs. You can install a Mendeley Cite While You Write plug in in order to insert references seamlessly into your essay or thesis.

No reference management software programme is perfect and you may have to add details to make the references exact, but Mendeley should make the process of referencing easier.

The Library provide training in using Mendeley, so contact us to arrange that.
