If you’re thinking of referring to your lecture notes in one of your assignments, you’ll need to know how to reference them. As with everything you use, it is necessary to acknowledge and give credit to the source by providing a full citation and reference. Please note however that you should always check with your lecturer or tutor before referencing lecture materials in your assessed work, as in some circumstances it may not be deemed appropriate for you to do so.

What should your reference include?

  • Author (surname, initials)
  • (Year)
  • ‘Title of notes’
  • [Medium] e.g. PowerPoint presentation
  • Module name
  • Institution
  • Available at: URL
  • (Accessed: date)

Here are some examples of what your bibliographic references might look like:

Burke, V. (2015) ‘Organisational culture’ [PowerPoint presentation], Managing People and Organisations. Cranfield University. Available at: https://bb.cranfield.ac.uk/ (Accessed: 27 June 2015).
