Assigment Resources

The Library's Assignment Help Guide will assist in planning your assignment.

The Assignment Planner will keep you on track.

Try using EndNote to manage your references (add the AGLC EndNote Style).

Note: EndNote has a number of issues with AGLC.
Make a Plain Text Copy as a final step and manually edit the Word document into Headings.
See the EndNote Tips page for more information on EndNote v AGLC.
