Library Policy Clean-Up

Gold seal Policy ImageWe’ve been working to make our policies easier to find and understand. This week we’ve added updated borrower and collection development policies as well as posted donation and final product access policies for the first time. These can all be found on the LITS Website under the menu heading Library Policies.

Is there something missing that you’d like to see? Let us know at library@goddard.edu.

Free Citation Tools

The library will no longer offer access to RefWorks beginning September 30th, 2013 at 5:00 pm EST, but there are lots of free or low cost citation generators and managers available to you. These are three of our favorites:

Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources. Check out their Quick Start Guide for a video tour and the basics. There is a comprehensive guide from Georgia State University you might find useful. There is 300 MB of cloud storage with more available to purchase if needed.

EasyBib is a free automatic bibliography and citation generator. Check out their introductory tutorial video. They also have a low-cost individual subscription called MyBibPro with more functionality.

Bibme is a free, fully automatic bibliography maker that auto-fills. Check out their Help & FAQ.

If you still prefer RefWorks to other available options, consider continuing with them with an individual subscription.

Have citations in RefWorks that you want to extract before service ends? No problem! Here’s a couple tutorial that will help you export into either Zotero or EasyBib’s MyBibPro. If you are using another service or software, having a peek at these will help you export into other software as well.
