Referencing and Citation

 

The most popular reference style used for computing disciplines is Harvard style

Consult your lecturer to ask which reference style should be used.

 

Where can I get help?

 

Referencing and citation is part of library training services. The library offers group or personalised training and assistance on referencing and citation

 

Reference Management Tools

 

The University of Zimbabwe Library has adopted the use of Mendeley and Zotero open source reference management software. These software are used for storing and organising references. The library offers training on the use of these reference management tools.
