Referencing is really important in academic writing and is something that is relatively new to me. I have done a little bit of referencing in one other essay but this is the first time that I have had to reference and work out how to reference everything on my own. there are lots of different referencing systems and the one that we have been asked to use for this essay is the Harvard Referencing system. I found this small program that helps you to create the correct reference you just put in all the details and it does the rest. I checked the results agains the handout sheet that is available on the wiki and it seems to do a perfect job. I will be using it to help me when referencing texts for my essay.
