  3. 3.  Other sites are www.waikato.ac.nz/go/apa Recommended Software Massey University Library recommends this software, in order from the simplest through to the more advanced. OWLL APA Interactive creates customised examples of APA style references Good for: creating a few references yourself; becoming familiar with and checking correct APA style. Discover (and some other Library databases) formats references in several styles, using the ‘Cite’ button in each item record Good for: copying & pasting a few references; getting references for items when finding material for assignments.
  4. 4.  Microsoft Word has a Citations & Bibliography function. Instructions are available within Word, or try Microsoft Word Tool (from Sheffield Hallam University). Good for: managing and keeping more references; generating reference lists and in-text citations. EndNote reference management software creates, stores and manages references. It is on the Library and computing lab computers, and is sold for personal computers for Massey- related work for $36.

  5. 5.  Other Software This free software may be useful. Please note that Massey University does not provide any support for these. Quickcite creates examples of APA, MLA, Chicago, and ACS style references (from the University of Auckland). NoodleTools Express generates APA, MLA and Chicago references. KnightCite generates APA, MLA and Chicago references. Mendeley is a reference manager and academic social network. Zotero helps to collect, organize, cite, and share research sources
  6. 6.  On reflection, and as this is a course requirement, the APA referencing system is a tool, I will have to learn to master and use for the next two years of study. It will also be helpful when and if I go on to do further study. A lot of universities use this format in their Education, Business, Social Science and Humanities disciplines, Massey University included. I have not study at university level for a long time and found that in researching this topic, the Massey University web site is the easiest, the most useful and helpful to a student wanting help with APA referencing.
