Are You Still Doing Your References By Hand?
Posted On: Friday, April 29, 2016 - 12:09 by Leila Ledbetter

Stop typing out those references!  Quit looking up where the commas are supposed to go in APA or AMA or whatever style you need to use. Avoid making piles of articles on your desktop. You should be using a reference management tool!

Reference management software can help you collect and organize your references (journal articles, books, Websites, videos, etc.), and then generate citations and bibliographies for your papers, scholarly articles, and any other publications.

There are a lot of different reference management programs that can help you gather PDFs and format your reference lists.  EndNote, RefWorks,...

    Organizational Habits: What Would You Tell Your Younger Self?
    Posted On: Thursday, December 11, 2014 - 15:48 by Megan von Isenburg

    A couple of weeks ago, a blog post entitled, "A Letter to My Younger Self" made the rounds in various academic settings. Published on the career advice website, Vitae, the post was written by University of Pennsylvania PhD candidate Elizabeth Hallowell. In the article, Hallowell thanks her younger self - the age at which she started her doctoral program - for being organized in terms of library research. Her writing constitutes some advice that any academic should consider:

  • Pick a citation management tool. Hallowell picked the "not perfect" Zotero, but points out that it doesn't matter so much which software you choose, as long as you choose one and get...

    Zotero
    Posted On: Monday, July 22, 2013 - 08:19 by Adrianne Leonardelli

    Zotero (zoh-TAIR-oh) is a free citation management tool that conveniently “lives in” your Web browser, where you do the majority of your work and research. Most commonly, Zotero works as an add-on for the Firefox browser. However, there is a Zotero standalone version that is compatible with Safari and Chrome.

    Zotero is easy to use and has many of the same, as well as some unique, features as EndNote and RefWorks.  With Zotero, you can:

    • Organize & manage references into searchable collections
    • Insert citations as you write using the Zotero word-processing plug-in
    • Create formatted bibliographies in many different styles
    • Attach PDFs, notes and images to references
    • Easily add citations directly from databases...

    Finding Full-text with EndNote
    Posted On: Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 13:09 by Beverly Murphy

    Want to find the full-text for the citations in your EndNote libraries? A new EndNote feature can be used to find the full text versions of the articles and store them within the Library for you. It's easy to use and does a fairly good job.

    When you have selected the citations that you want to find, choose the “Find Full Text” feature. You will need to go to Preferences and change them for this feature so that it uses "PubMed Linkout" and the "Open URL Path" (http://getitatduke.library.duke.edu), which will try to link you to the full text at Duke. Once you start the feature, you will need to agree to the copyright statement, but then EndNote will attempt to find a PDF. If...
