E-Books guide

This is a guide to using SGUL's e-book collection

How to cite and reference e-books

You cite and reference an e-book in the same way that you cite and reference a physical book.  Some e-book platforms give their own guidance on how to cite and reference their e-books, however their suggestions may not match SGUL's guidance.   You should always follow the standard guidance from SGUL. 

Login with your university login at Cite them right online to guide you through the referencing process.

See our Harvard referencing guide - PDF for tips on how to reference common sources such as books, journals and websites.
