Transcript of Die referencing die!

Referencing Guide Referencing is a major part of the assignments you have to do.
there are reasons for that, but none of them are good.
All you need to know is that Assignments that aren't properly referenced will be failed, and their authors, shot. So, let this guide show you
how to fall in line
and perpetuate this useless, outdated concept. First, referencing has 2 parts: According to Seuss (1982), Sam I am does not like green eggs and ham.


Sam I am does not like green eggs and ham (Seuss, 1982). But, if your quote is more than 3 lines long... stop it. That's just plain copying. (Seuss, 1960, p. 4) You also might find yourself quoting someone who's, actually, quoting someone else. (big surprise)
In that case, use both sources in your text. God forbid you find someone quoting someone who's quoting someone else :/ Direct Quotations Books Referring to more than one author Referring to more than three authors Referencing more
than one work
by the same author referring to authors
with the same surname
who have published
in the same year, or... referring to an author who published more than one work in the same year Newspapers Only use them to wrap fish and chips, or line the catbox after you've listed the name of the newspaper, the date, year and page number:

For example:
(Sydney Morning Herald 7 March 1994, p.8) Private interview Note: Private interviews don't need to be included in your reference list.
Because we said so. Stop being so difficult. CD-ROM (!?) If you find one, dust it off, and include the full title and year of publication, before you burn it and toss it.

For example:
(Microsoft Word, eeewwww! 1985) Internet No tagging, no hyperlinking, no retweeting, no "liking" stuff, no track-backs, ping-backs, ping-pongs, or piggy backs. No making it easy, useful, or fun.

Find the author (ha!) and year, and write it like this:
Buchler, 2010

Oh, and if you can't find any info, the url will do. (Can I get a hallelujah?) Film, Video & TV No, we don't mean youtube, vimeo, mp4, etc... that's internet, ya see? The Boring Part
The Useless Part But, to make it more fun, different sources are referenced in many different ways. Reference List or Bibliography After writing your assignment, and including all references, you then need to add a reference list.
It's annoying and lengthy, and on top of everything else, it has heaps of details that I've already forgotten. But I do remember this:

it's got heaps of commas, full-stops and parentheses
get one asterisk wrong, and you're toast. The Useless Part When it is a direct quotation you need to put it in "quotation marks". We hope this referencing guide has changed your life.

If not, call 1800-so-not-interested, and tell someone who cares ;) If you must reference, this is how you do it: The Boring Part It all depends whether you're... and now... Die Referencing! Die!
