Important news about RefMe

It has been announced today that RefMe will be changing after March 7th, 2017.  This is sad news as it is a popular referencing tool especially with CHHS students.  Full details on this news can be found on the RefMe website but here are a few important issues to note:

  • RefMe is merging with CiteThisForMe
  • If you want to create an account for CiteThisForMe it will cost £6.99 a month, you will however be able to generate a reference list without making an account but it won’t save for future use.
  • If you have a RefMe account you will still have access to your account and saved Reference lists until June 1st, 2017, but you will need to export them before this date or you will lose them.

If you have any concerns about  this news please do get in touch with us, our contact details can be found on our Library Guides pages.

Referencing images in assignments

With a lot of you working on assignments which require images to be included, we’ve had a number of queries on how to reference an image in an assignment.  This isn’t always easy but here are some instructions on how to do this below.  Please get in touch if you are unsure chhslibrary@swansea.ac.uk 

In text:
The reference in text is similar to other materials, you still need to look for an author and a date, although these aren’t always available.  You will also need to give your image a number and a title in text.  For example:


Figure 1: Librarians (Human & Health Sciences, Medicine and Science Library Team, n.d.)

In the reference list:
Human & Health Sciences, Medicine and Science Library Team. (n.d). About us. [Photograph]. Retrieved from https://hhmslibraryteam.wordpress.com/about-us/

The above is an example of a photograph reference, if you were citing a different image format you can replace [Photograph] with [Graph], [Digital image], [Demographic map] etc.
