This guide provides information on how to reference using the APA 6th edition referencing style. PLEASE NOTE: Theology students should use Chicago Footnote Style

How to reference brochures and pamphlets

Brochures and pamphlets

Librarians define pamphlets as having less than 50 pages. In the Morling Library, the pamphlets are housed in a different collection  to the books as they get lost if they are shelved between the books. The reference for a pamphlet from the Morling Library may look very similar to a book reference. Brochures should be referenced as if they were pamphlets. However, if the brochure or pamphlet has been downloaded from a webpage but is not a Government document, reference it as an electronic article retrieved from a webpage and include the web address (or URL).
