Harvard Referencing is what Plymouth College of Art uses and it is used so you can properly reference someones work.
Examples we were given by the lecturer were:
- State Author (1936:p.47) You don’t need to put the title down.
- Footnote³. Have a list at the bottom of the page
- Introduce a quote by setting the context
- Don’t start or end with a quote
- You’re making a point
- Always have the author as … Shelly. M. (1964), Title, (Second edition), Publisher
- ETAL meaning others. Add after first author.
- If a quote is more than 4 lines separate it from the text. Also indent it.
- You will lose marks if you go over or under the word count.
- Better the quote the better the argument
- Show balance to an argument but don’t stray to far, you want to convince the reader that you’re right.
- Can be a supportive argument. The other person can have a stronger opinion but still positive.
- Required to look at multiple sources. Books, magazines, lectures, web, etc.
- Can request books to get into the library.
- Eye magazine is a very good publication as well as Baseline and Design week.
