"In this particular case, you could simply insert an endnote or footnote which will appear in the text simply as a superscript number"

What does this mean? This was in response to me asking about how to reference a very long web page, without any clear indication as to the extent of each page. (It was a book that was published online)

The website in question was this:

Have a read of this - it's solved all of my Harvard referencing related problems http://libweb.anglia.ac.uk/referencing/harvard.htm

That said, what you're referring to seems to be Chicago / footnote style referencing, which I've always found dreadfully confusing.

Somewhere on your own Dept website will be a guide to referencing. This will give you examples re. webpages - which is essentially the URL and the date you accessed it.

If you are having to use footnotes etc, then there are add-on bits of software that make his very simple - Endnote and Zotero as two examples. Your Library or IT Centre probably run courses or help sessions on one of these to get you started - ask them.

Here is the Zotero site - have a read of what it does. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zotero

It's refering to the style of referencing where you would put a [1] after the reference, with the full reference linked to the coresponding number at the end of the text instead of using (author a and author b, year) style referencing.

In this case, you would reference the whole webpage at the end of the text.

However, it doesn't seem like the reply has actually answered your specific question. I think they mean that just referencing the webpage is sufficient.
