Architecture: Referencing for Architecture

How to search for and find architectural literature and images


As Architecture students, you will be asked to use either the APA 7th referencing style or the Chicago 17th Footnote style

What is referencing and why is it important? 


At university you are expected to reference information sources used in your assignments. Referencing is important as it:

  • gives credit to authors
  • shows that you’ve done your research  
  • means that others can find the resources you have used .
