Meteorology Library: Referencing

A guide to facilities and services offered by the Meteorology Library in the Meteorology Department.

American Meteorological Society Referencing

The department uses the American Meteorological Society Referencing (AMS) system.  The guidelines for this referencing system can be found on their website:

If you would like to use a reference managing software, we would recommend that you use Mendeley as this works best with AMS referencing.  Details about setting up a Mendeley account, using Mendeley and importing references in AMS can be found on this Library page:

If you need any further help with referencing please drop-in during the librarian's office hours (Tues and Fri 8:30-13:30) or email at
