It is recommended that you only cite and reference sources that you have seen yourself.
For sources that you have not actually seen but which are referred to in another work you must cite both the author of the idea you are using and the source in which you found it.
In your reference list only give details of the source that you have actually seen.

When you use a direct quotation (or copy and paste) from another work you need to reference the source of the information.
If you put someone else's work into your own words you still need to include a reference for it because it's not your own idea.
