Not sure if you guy's writing up your dissertations have been hassled as much as I have about 'Harvard referencing' all of the material that you read/see but a good site which my tutor told me about is http://www.neilstoolbox.com. It basically puts all the relevant info in the correct order for it to be an official credited source. It has some other features which help with writing too.

On that note, is anyone writing an art related subject dissy?

Only thing that really matters about referencing is consistency. The 'style' that you do it at undergrad level is unimportant.

I do my referencing by hand for I am a badman

If you get to the point of writing a dissertation without knowing how to reference what the fuck have you been doing?

In my first year so it's pretty chilled at the mo, but referencing is still a bitch.

On a slightly different note, that new student loan just dropped. Eek

Exactly. By hand is the best method.
