    Well I have left my uni work to the last minute as usual and I found this good resource but not sure how to reference it as not sure if it counts as a website or what?? Please help!! The link is:
    Note: I need to reference it Harvard-style

    Management of Gorillas in Captivity. (1997). 1st ed. [ebook] Atlanta, Georgia: Gorilla Species Survival Plan and the Atlanta/Fulton County Zoo, inc., p.*pages used*. Available at: http://gorillassp.org/MembersSection...y%20Manual.pdf [Accessed 14 Jan. 2017].

    I used this website:


    1. In MS Word, in References Tab, under Citations & Bibliography group,
    click Style dropdown and select Harvard.

    2. Same group as in 1. above, Click Manage Sources > New > Tick Show All Bibliography Fields

    3. Enter details that you need. (Type of Source: Select Document from Web site [this is a pdf document])

    4. Click Close

    5. Click Insert Citation with cursor placed where you need > Select the ref (will show near top)

    6. Same group: Click Bibliography > Insert Bibliography with cursor placed under your bibliography list.


    (Citation: e.g.)Gorillas should be well nurtured (B Armstrong, 1997) and protected

    B Armstrong, C. e. a., 1997. gorillassp.org. [Online] Available at: http://www.gorillassp.org/MembersSec...y%20Manual.pdf [Accessed 2017].
    1. The principal Harvard style uses author names in upper case and lists all authors, while the University of London Harvard style uses lower case for author names!

    2. Make yours consistent with your other references, but also find out about any specific differences from the above that your uni specifies.

    3. Harvard lists all authors (I think), but here NOT practical as there are plenty
