Recording references

It is very important that you keep a reliable record of your references as you come across them in preparation for your assignments. There are a range of bibliographic software packages available for this purpose but these tend to be quite complicated to use and probably only worth considering if you are undertaking postgraduate study. You may find it easier to record your references alphabetically and/or by course using ordinary word processing software to build up a database of references. Remember though to back it up or keep a copy on a memory stick. You can also record brief notes on why you found a particular reference useful, you can refer to important page numbers and even record complete quotes if they seem relevant to you.
