  • 1. Referencing: finding the missing piece Sarah Kevill, University of Stirling, s.j.kevill@stir.ac.uk The ability to accurately cite a range of different types of information and construct bibliographies is recognised as an important facet of an information literate individual. But as librarians, how do we engage our students in this process and make it an active, rather than passive learning experience? This paper will report on an initiative at the University of Stirling which is transforming how the teaching of citing references and constructing a bibliography is delivered; from a how to do, to a why we do approach involving interactivity, group work and discussion. A referencing game has been devised in which students are required to construct accurate references for four different types of literature. The benefits of the new approach are twofold: for the students the new learning style encourages discussion, peer learning and collaboration. Secondly, as librarians we are developing a greater awareness of the challenges which students can face when constructing a bibliography and can target support appropriately. Delivered as part of the Information Literacy on a Shoestring stream, this approach requires only the most basic of equipment which will be available in every library. The technique has been used in a Higher Education setting but could easily be adapted and delivered in Further Education, Health or School Libraries.
