If you don't know where to start looking for information for an assignment take a look at our unit guides. We are developing them for our units at ACPE and we are always working on new ones. The unit guides will give you information on the best books, journals, websites and other resources that will help you with your studies. They also give information on how to reference your work to avoid plagiarism.
Referencing is an important part of any academic course. It ensures that your lecturer is able to assess the quality of your resources. It also gives credit to the original author for the work they have done. To use the work of another author without correct referencing is called plagiarism.
