When preparing your assignment you need to acknowledge all the materials you draw upon, quote, paraphrase or mention.
Referencing is a standardised way to acknowledge all the ideas and concepts you have used and allow readers to trace and verify your sources.
You should check your unit outline or consult with academic convenors for the style required by your department. You may be penalised for not conforming to your course's requirements.
