Tourism: Referencing & Writing

Help with Referencing

Referencing (and citing) refers to the method by which authors give credit to their sources of research information.

If you are unsure which citation style to use either read your Course Outline, or ask your lecturer or tutor.

Help with Writing

To assist you to develop the writing skills necessary to become a confident and skilled writer, the Student Learning Development offer the following services:

If you are an enrolled student, you are welcome to visit Student Learning Development in the south-west corner of the Central Library (ISB) Building to discuss any aspect of your study that is causing concern. You can also telephone 479 8801 or e-mail  hedc.studentlearning@otago.ac.nz to make an appointment with a Learning Adviser.

If you are an off-campus student, the same service is available to you via Skype, Otago Connect, email or telephone, whichever suits. Contact hedc.studentlearning@otago.ac.nz or telephone 479 8801 to make arrangements.
