Creating a Bibliography / Reference List
It is VERY EASY to create a bibliography using the SLASA online referencing generator!!
Create a document and start your bibliography as you start your research...
Use the SLASA Referencing Generator to help you do this accurately:
Copy the information from your source into the template, and a reference will be generated for you..
Copy and paste this reference into the document you have created for your bibliography.
Once your research is complete, organise your bibliography in alphabetical order and include it at the end of your research.
See the video below that Ms Hildreth has created, explaining and demonstrating this process:
Help with In-Text Referencing
Turnitin is an electronic text matching system that compares text in a student assignment against a database of sources. The database contains copies of electronic text on the Internet, in published works, on commercial databases, and in assignments previously submitted to Turnitin by students all over the world, including assignments obtained from internet sites that sell student papers.
Turnitin provides an Originality Report in which 'matched' text is underlined, colour coded, and linked to either the original source or a similar document on its database. The report also provides an indication of the proportion of the submitted work that matches other sources.
You should receive an invitation and password in your school email account from turnitin.com when an assignment is added to your class.
