Update to Cardiff University Harvard Referencing style

You may have noticed that the Cardiff Harvard style guide has been updated recently. Here’s the two main updates and changes made:

1. In the past you had the option to put a web link at the end of a journal reference. This URL format has now been replaced by a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) i.e.

Berry, D. P. and Bell, M. P. 2012. Expatriates: gender, race and class distinctions in international management. Gender, Work & Organization 19(1), pp. 10-28. doi: 10.1111/j.1468-0432.2011.00577.x

You can usually find the DOI next to the article title or on the PDF version of the article. If there is no DOI available you are advised to provide the normal journal reference without a DOI.

2. You no longer need to add [Online] to any reference type. This was usually used for webpages. A webpage would now be referenced:

Thompson, B. 2009. What role for TV in the wired world? Available at: [Accessed: 10 September 2016]

Take a look at the Cardiff University Harvard Referencing guide or tutorial for further info.

Need to obtain a new or replacement ID card?

Unfortunately due to staff absence we are currently only able to make or reproduce ID cards between 10am and 12pm on the ground floor of the Cochrane Building.

If making a special journey please contact or 02920 688137 beforehand to confirm current arrangements and for further information. We will let you know when normal service is resumed.

Ooo a possible new classroom chair!? Try it out, post a pic, and tell us what you think

We need your feedback on a potential new chair! 
Come and take it for a spin on the first floor of the Health Library and if enough of us like it then perhaps we’ll see it in the University’s flexible teaching spaces. 
Post your comments below to let us know what you think! And why not post a picture to @cuhealthliby #sittingcomfy

Interruption to Health Library water supply

On Saturday 7th November 2015 the Health Library will be open as normal, but there will be an interruption to the hot and cold water supply to the Cochrane Building.

This will happen between 8.00am-2.00pm.

As the water supply will be disconnected, the toilets and water fountains will be unavailable. The next available toilets are at the Concourse in the main hospital.

Apologies for any inconvenience.
