We know referencing can be tricky, which is why we like to offer you help at the immediate point of need, via chat, email and our library skills drop-ins. We also realise that sometimes a quick conversation isn’t quite enough, and you’d like to sit down and talk through referencing with someone who can explain it in a bit more depth, or look at a few more examples. That’s why we’re making our APA referencing experts available for bookable 30 minute online appointments!
