Lectures and Other Course Materials

 

  • Course material may include lectures and course outlines, course notes, student assignments or discussion posts etc. 
  • Course materials may not be peer reviewed research resources. Be sure to check with your lecturer if they are suitable for use in your assignments.
  • If the course material is freely available online, hyperlink the title and include an accessed date.
  • If the course material is only available online via Canvas (and not publicly accessible any other way) you may treat them as personal communication and include the reference in text only. As it can be difficult to know for sure with some material if this is the case, the Library suggests following the patterns outlined below. This also allows for full referencing of any documents used.
