In the traditional note system, it is more common to use a bibliography than a list of references. In some cases when you use endnotes rather than footnotes, an additional bibliography may not be required. (Check with your lecturer).
At the end of your assignment, attach a list of all material which you have consulted in preparing your work. The list may contain items which you have chosen not to quote from or which you have decided were not helpful. Nevertheless, these items have formed part of your preparation and should be included. The list thus produced forms your bibliography. It is possible that your bibliography may contain just one item, the primary text, if that is honestly all you have used. The bibliography is organised according to the authors' last names which are arranged in alphabetical order.
Bibliographical entries differ from footnotes or endnotes in a straightforward way that is easy to remember. Bibliographies end assignments, and each component of an individual entry is presented in final form, punctuated by full stops.
Bibliographical entries may vary in complexity. In general, use the following ordering systems as your guide in presenting material. Appropriate punctuation is shown.
- name of author/s, editor/s or institution responsible for the book.
- Full Title of the Book : Including Sub-title.
- volume number or total number of volumes in a multi-volume work.
- edition, if not the first.
- city of publication :
- date of publication.
- name of author/s.
- "Title of the article."
- Title of Serial
- volume number,
- no. issue number
- page range of whole article.

This page gives information about Moodle assignments only. For Turnitin assignments submitted through Moodle, see the page How to use Turnitin within Moodle.
The Moodle Assignment tool allows your teacher to set four kinds of assignments. From simplest to most complex, they are:
- Offline activity - the teacher may set you a assignment here, that you complete and submit outside of Moodle.
- Online text - typically used to accept simple text based assignments within the browser window
- File submission - can be used to accept a range of file types including MS Word, MS Excel, PDF and Images
- Media Collection - can be used in conjunction with File submission
Your teacher can set the assignment to allow for multiple types of submissions, eg. Online Text plus File Submission.
When you submit a video assignment within Moodle, you will first upload the video(s) to your Media Gallery within the Moodle course before submitting that Media Gallery (and any videos within) to a Moodle Assignment.
If you are completing an assessment or activity with a grading component, use a recommended browser on a desktop or laptop computer. Apple iPad's and other tablets are not fully supported for use with UNSW Moodle.
When submitting an assignment in Moodle, keep in mind that if you are inactive in Moodle for too long your session will time out and you’ll need to log in again.
