Subject Support for Medicine

The Library’s Medicine, Nursing & Midwifery and Health Sciences team are based in two locations: the Medical Library and the Nursing and Midwifery Library.

By providing an accurate bibliography and references you demonstrate the range and depth of the research that you have done on your essay or thesis.

It is therefore essential to keep accurate records of the books, journal articles and general sources that you have used. It also ensures that there is no suspicion of plagiarism.

Different subject areas use different referencing styles and your lecturers will advise you on this.

The Library has created a   for the Harvard Referencing Style. Ask for a copy at the Customer Services Desk or download directly from the Library web site.


EndNote is a popular software package designed to help you create references and bibliographies. It integrates with Microsoft Word enabling you to cite references in any one of several hundred styles eg: Harvard, MLA, or Vancouver as well as providing a portable “library” of all your references that you can add to over time.

The Library provides introductory EndNote training sessions throughout the year. For information on these, please visit the  page.
Remember, our Research team are available to support research in Medicine.
