I recently visited our year 12 IB girls to talk to them about referencing and bibliographies. I watched as their faces fell while I explained the Harvard referencing system and how you needed to have the full stops, commas and brackets in the right places, that the title is italicised and you have to put everything in the right order but that it can depend on what kind of resource you are referencing. You could see the dread in their eyes as they envisioned having to trawl through those lists of how to format different resources and set out their bibliography appropriately.
The relief was palpable when I introduced Cite This For Me - a wee gem of an online tool that will create you a perfectly formatted reference list. You just enter the information about your resource and it does the rest! Check out the screencast below to see just how easy it is!
