Your work must be correctly referenced to demonstrate that you have completed sufficient detailed research using authoritative sources and attributing facts and ideas you have gathered to their original authors. If you have used electronic resources such as databases, many of these have a link or icon to "cite" the work. Microsoft Word has a "References" tab which allows you to add sources. There are also web sites which will "autocite" resources. Ensure that you choose the APA style of citations requested by your teacher and check that any auto citing site have detected all the relevant bibliographic details. You may need to enter some of these manually. Take the time to cite each source as you use it and learn how to use referencing tools; this will save time throughout your studies. Further information is available on pages 16-17 of the School Diary.
Marymede now has a subscription to CiteMaker which is an online referencing tool that will format your citations to the APA style and allows you to save bibliographies as works in progress. It will also generate in-text citations for you to insert into your work. The final bibliography can then be downloaded to be incorporated in your submitted school work. The first time that you use CiteMarker, you must register, creating a username and password. Remember to look for extra citation information not collected by the "auto-cite" and add this information manually.
