Finding and Using Ebooks



Most Humanities courses at the University of Brighton use the Chicago style of referencing. Some degree courses, such as Creative Writing and Literature, use MHRA. Check with your Module Leader if you are unsure which referencing style to use.

Log into the Cite them Right resource below for guidance on referencing and bibliographies in all these styles. If you would like to use an online tool to help you build an online reference list, we recommend using either EndNote or ZoteroBib software.
