Harvard Referencing

When we use someone else’s work or words in our own work we must reference in a Harvard format to give credit and recognition to the original author or artist and show a clear understanding of the resource. If a source is not referenced it can be classed as plagiarism.

What to reference:

  • Websites
  • Books
  • Artwork (in books or online)
  • Exhibitions/shows/events
  • Magazines
  • Films and other digital media
  • PDFs and other documents

In-text Citation

If using a quote in a piece of writing, it must be referenced using the following format;

(Baker 2017:1) > (Author surname Year:Page number(if applicable))

More than one author: (Bob & Dylan 2001) > (All authors surnames Year)


For this exercise, I found a resource for each of the categories and reference them as I would in my work.
