If you need to cite an item that you have found in the Library catalogue you can use the " Cite this item icon, to the top right of the item title, to get a formatted citation that can be copy/pasted into a Word document.

  • Click on the " icon to get a pop-up window.
  • Select from the Choose a Citation Format drop down menu to change As shown on search results to the relevant format, e.g. Harvard / APA / IEEE etc.
  • Highlight the resulting citation and Ctrl+C to copy
  • Open the word document and on the Home tab, Clipboard group, select the Paste dropdown menu
  • Select the Keep Text Only option (if you do not do this it keeps the text in a blue box as it was on the catalogue)
