To adhere to the Academic Honesty Policy for the College it is essential that all students (and teachers) acknowledge the work and creations of others and use a recognized referencing system consistently. At Le Régent College we recommend the Harvard Author-Date System which can be used to varying levels of complexity as students progress through the school. As well as offering a nifty automatic referencing tool through the Access-It Library Catalogue for resources used from the library, we have now invested in an excellent, user-friendly online tool that covers just about any material that you may need to reference.
The SLASA Online Reference Generator allows students to choose, Junior, Middle or Senior School Versions and to not only get working examples of how to reference sources but a live reference building tool that creates the citation with you. You just need to have all the information to hand, fill in the blanks and copy the finished citation into your assignment or essay.
This reference generator will top the list on our Referencing page, but it is password driven, so please ask your teacher or Mr Bull for the password and don’t share with anyone outside the college.

For at least half a decade now, New York’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum has been digitizing its exhibition catalogs and other art books. Now you can find all of the publications made available so far — not just to read, but to download in PDF and ePub formats — at the Internet Archive. If you’ve visited the Guggenheim’s non-digital location on Fifth Avenue even once, you know how much effort the institution puts toward the preservation and presentation of modern art, and that comes through as much in its printed material as it does in its shows.
This week’s Website of the Week, is the Getty Research Institute. “The Getty Research Institute is dedicated to furthering knowledge and advancing understanding of the visual arts and their various histories through its expertise, active collecting program, public programs, institutional collaborations, exhibitions, publications, digital services, and residential scholars programs. Its Research Library and Special Collections of rare materials and digital resources serve an international community of scholars and the interested public. The Institute’s activities and scholarly resources guide and sustain each other and together provide a unique environment for research, critical inquiry, and scholarly exchange.”
There is a huge wealth of resources and information in the many, many pages of the GRI, all concerned with the visual arts. The site is divided into several main areas all with vast collections of resources, meticulously catalogued and searchable.
