Rydym wedi cael cwpwl o ymholiadau yr wythnos hon ar sut i gyfeirnodi ddefnyddiau wedi’u ysgrifennu gan 1000 Lives Improvement.  Felly dyma’r atebion i chi:

Os yr ydych am gyfeirio at y llyfryn The Quality Improvement Guide yna ddilynwch yr esiampl yn ein canllaw APA ar gyfer Cyhoeddiadau Swyddogol ar-lein.

Yn y testun:
1000 Lives Improvement (2014) NEU (1000 Lives Improvement, 2014)

Yn y rhestr o gyfeiriadau:
1000 Lives Improvement. (2014). The quality improvement guide. Retrieved from http://www.1000livesplus.wales.nhs.uk/sitesplus/documents/1011/Quality%20Improvement%20Guide%20-%203rd%20edition%20%28IQT%29%20WEB.pdf

Yn eich rhestr o gyfeiriadau mae angen rhestru o dan O.
Trin y rhifolyn fel petai wedi’i sillafu (er enghraifft, trin “1000” fel “One Thousand”).
—————————————————————————————————————————————-We’ve had a few queries about how to reference 1000 Lives Improvement materials this week so here are a few tips:

If you wanted to reference this booklet The Quality Improvement Guide follow the example in our APA guide for Online Official Publication.

In text:
1000 Lives Improvement (2014) OR (1000 Lives Improvement, 2014)

In the reference list:
1000 Lives Improvement. (2014). The quality improvement guide. Retrieved from http://www.1000livesplus.wales.nhs.uk/sitesplus/documents/1011/Quality%20Improvement%20Guide%20-%203rd%20edition%20%28IQT%29%20WEB.pdf

Important tip:
In the reference list this would file alphabetically under O.
Treat the numeral as though it was spelled out (for example, alphabetise “1000” as if it was “one thousand”).

5 days of referencing (#su5dor). Day 5.

Day 5. Useful tools.
There are a wide variety of tools which are freely available to help you with citing and creating reference lists, however none of them are perfect which is why it is important you know the basics of APA referencing and the key points to be aware of.

ifind, the library catalogue has a tool which recommends how books and journal articles should look in the APA style of referencing. Click on Library, then Actions then citation to view this. I have done a short screencast to show you this, click here to watch it.

ifind

Always check this! The tool is good but it will make some mistakes therefore you need to know which bits of information are required.

Referencing using word (Manage sources)
Word has a referencing tab on the tools bar which can be useful if you use the same laptop or computer to write assignments.  It will manage your sources and input in the correct APA style.  Take a look at our guide on using the referencing tool in Microsoft Word for more details on using this tool.

Endnote Online
Endnote is the tool Swansea University subscribes to, there is a desktop version for PCs on campus but the online version is very useful as you can use it anywhere that you have access to the internet.  Our guide can be found by clicking here and we can provide further training if you would like to use it.  You can create your own library of sources and use the cite while you write feature in word which will format your references in the APA style.

Thanks for participating in 5 days of referencing (#su5dor) remember referencing help and advice is always available from your CHHS librarians, you can book a one-one appointment (also available via skype), email us, or call in the Library to speak with one of us. You can also find lots of useful tips on our Library Guides pages.

If you’ve enjoyed this short course let us know using our short feedback form.
Good luck with your assignment.
