Studying Effectively

Finding referencing information - books

All the information you need to create a book reference can be found on the title page and the back of the title page. The title page is not the front cover of the book, it is usually one or two pages in.  

The information needed to create an accurate book reference would include:

  • Author
  • Date
  • Title
  • Edition
  • Place of publication
  • Publisher

For example: 

Rigby, S.E. (2000) Essential Java. 2nd ed. Paris: O'Hagan
