SPGS details


Guide to St Paul's Grammar High School Library

Grids to layout your reference list and bibliography

The Reference List is a list of resources used in an assessment task - i.e. those cited in text. The Bibliography includes the Reference List and a list of other resources which have been read, but not specifically referred to in the task. St Paul's Grammar School uses the Harvard system as outlined in the SPGS Style Guide.

These are arranged in alphabetical order according to the authors’ surnames (in most cases). Use the grids below to collect full details for books, encyclopedias, journals and the internet. You can also print a grid for use (click here).

Please note- different institutions will have different requirements - check their guides. For unusual or confusing references, further help can be sought in the School Library.
