This Guide provides information on how to link to and embed Library resources in your course Learning Management System. You can find information about Reserve, Copyright and Permissions processes here.

Citation and Referencing - how to do it

All copyright works, chapters, quotes, images and videos must be referenced.  Good academic practice is to reference sources at the time of use.  Attribution is a right of an author/creator within copyright legislation (Moral Rights). There are 3 moral rights awarded to copyright holder’s right of attribution, right against false attribution and right of integrity (relates to adapting works).

All copyright works created by others within your course LMS MUST be acknowledged.

The following links will help you reference all the sources you use in your course.
