Discontinuation of Birmingham Harvard referencing


On 14 May2015, University Education Committee agreed that the in-house Birmingham Harvard system of referencing would be discontinued.

The PDF guide for Birmingham Harvard will continue to be available on the university intranet for those who are currently using it.

During the summer, Library Services' i-cite guide will be enhanced to give a greater number of examples of reference types in generic Harvard and Vancouver styles. 

An online tool called Cite Them Right has also been made available. This gives students an interactive guide to creating references in Harvard, Vancouver, APA, MLA, OSCOLA and MHRA.
