refworks – give it a go! November 13, 2008

Posted by john wright in Uncategorized.

Stop Press! We have a brand new reference management software called Refworks! Refworks allows you to import and manage references from any source – databases, catalogues, search engines, books etc. You can then produce perfectly formatted bibliographies or cite your references within your paper as you write. We had a really successful Refworks taster day in early November and the challenge now is to get as many people using Refworks as possible. I’m going to be scheduling more drop-in sessions over the coming months and producing some downloadable Helpsheets. To start using Refworks go to our library webpages and follow the instructions on creating your account. Please get in touch if you’d like further help.

I feel a little bit cheated today. Yesterday I purchased a bumper pack ‘mint assortment’ from a well known supermarket chain. I just wanted something to suck on during the afternoons. Only today when I opened the packet did I find that there were actually only 2 varieties of mint contained within – the humbug and something resembling a glacier mint. I think the producers of this pack need to think long and hard about their liberal use of the word ‘assortment‘, and I’ll be telling them as much in a sternly worded letter.

I’ve been enjoying my football again recently after a long injury lay-off . I am widely regarded as the Zinedine Zidane of the library team, essentially a creative midfield player with exquisite close control, a perfectly measured pass, and the ability to chip in with one or two crucial goals when called upon. You’ll just have to take my word for it!

I have some ‘no added sugar’ mints in my office, I’ve been very happy with them.
