Lesson 2

In the first lesson of this course on referencing sources in Harvard, we explored the thirteen most common printed source types and demonstrated how to cite and reference them. However, because many sources are found in online formats only today, this final lesson next deals with the seventeen digital sources that students will commonly reference. For any questions about referencing features or overcoming referencing challenges (like locating source details or forming references with absent or similar source details), don’t forget to refer to those short courses too.
