FLO style guide for authors
Referencing and quoting
Use whatever referencing style is appropriate for your school/area and apply this style consistently to referencing and quoting within your FLO site. This approach models good practice for users (eg students).
- Use whatever referencing style is appropriate for your school/area. For example, the School of Nursing and Midwifery uses the Harvard author-date reference system.
- Direct hyperlinks to websites (eg Cancer Council of SA) do not require a reference that includes 'viewed/accessed date' (or whatever style you are using) as you are linking 'live' from a website (FLO) to a website (external).
Use a consistent style: for example, indented, with the source at the bottom of quote (using the relevant referencing style).
You could use the Indent icon to move the quote text in from the margin, separating it from other text. For example:
It’s not about the tools, it’s using the tools to facilitate learning. — Churches, Andrew, Bloom's digital taxonomy, educational origami wiki
Using a block quote
You could use the <blockquote></blockquote> tags to distinguish the quote from other text (to do this, click on the HTML icon in the HTML toolbar, and type <blockquote>Text here</blockquote> where you want to place the quote). For example:
It’s not about the tools, it’s using the tools to facilitate learning.
