· ReferenĀ©ite: The main purpose of ReferenĀ©ite is to encourage students to correctly reference the sources they use in written work. To do this, it: * Promotes the meaningfulness of the practice: it is not mere institutional compliance - the values at the core of the practice is shared across cultures; * Provides tools and information to make the correct referencing of sources significantly easier - to virtually eliminate any excuse that it is too difficult or confusing. * Provides 24/7 access to referencing information delivered in an engaging, efficient and student-centred format via a single simple url (www.cite.auckland.ac.nz); through the site's own content and also by acting as a central 'hub' for excellent online referencing resources
