The Library has two tools, EndNote and BrowZine, that can help make the research process more efficient, freeing up more of your valuable research time.
Feel like you could do with some help organizing references for your research paper or journal article? The solution could be EndNote. The Library has recently subscribed to this reference management tool that lets you create and manage a personal library of searchable references. It also allows you to work with MS Word to insert citations in your paper, and generate a bibliography automatically. There are over 6,000 citation styles for you to choose from, including popular ones such as APA 6th to those required by academic journals. You can have your EndNote library available on your computer at work or at home or if you use EndNote Online you can access your Library wherever you have a web connection.
To get started with EndNote, head over to the Library's EndNote Research Guide. It includes a link to the EndNote Desktop software, and step-by-step help on using some of the program's major features. Keep an eye on the Library's Information Skills Workshops as we will be offering EndNote training.
If you are looking for an easy way to keep up-to-date with the latest research in your subject area, try BrowZine. It is available as a mobile app or on the web. Using it you can browse the Library's scholarly journal articles, create a bookshelf of your favorite titles, and conveniently save articles for offline viewing. It can also save you time by sending you an alert when new articles are published. For easy browsing, the journals are organized into areas of study allowing you to locate major titles or discover new ones.
You can download the app, available for iOS and android mobile devices, or select the web version which has a range of more powerful features. Go to the BrowZine Library webpage for more details including help in setting up, videos, and FAQs. Enjoy browsing!
