Referencing is an integral part of tertiary study. Students must acknowledge their sources of information and credit them where appropriate. Becoming familiar with and understanding the importance of referencing is a key to academic success.

Library staff can provide guidance and assistance with referencing; however, we cannot complete your referencing for you or do a complete check of your references and citations.

Printing and copying

Printing, scanning, and copying facilities are available to current students using a current Western Sydney University, Sydney City Campus student card.

Student print accounts are autoloaded with credit every session for both printing and copying. If required credit can be topped at the library desk or at the reception. Printing credit is non-refundable and non-transferable. Please note unused credit does not roll over.
