Reference List: Public signs and plaques

To reference a public sign or plaque:

  • List the name of the organisation that commissioned or placed the sign/plaque and the date of installation if possible.
  • Provide the title of the sign or plaque and a short descriptor in square brackets.
  • Provide the location details, including a full address.

Although in many cases very little information is available, list as many of these details as possible.

For example: 

Greater London Council. (1969). Katherine Mansfield… [Ceramic plaque]. 7 East Heath Road, Camden, NW3, London, United Kingdom.

25 Infantry Battalion 2 N.Z.E.F. [Bronze plaque] (n.d.). Wellington Waterfront, Wellington, New Zealand.
