Cite Sources & Build Your Bibliography

RefWorks ... an essential tool for managing your research projects:

  • Use RefWorks to save references from EBSCO, JSTOR, Lexis-Nexis etc.
  • RefWorks saves information about the source as well as the link to the full text (when available).
  • Use "Search ... Online Catalog" to search and export references from the Wabash Library Catalog.
  • You may also create a citation for anything, including a web site, movie, art work, interview, etc.
  • Create a bibliography using the popular styles (APA, Chicago, MLA, etc.) used at Wabash.
  • Use the Write-N-Cite plug-in for Word to cite sources as you write

 

EndNote Web... a popular tool for scientists to manage research projects:

  • Use EndNote Web to save references from Web of Science, EBSCO, etc.
  • EndNote Web saves information about the source as well as the link to the full text (when available).
  • Create a bibliography using the popular styles (APA, Chicago, MLA, etc.) used at Wabash.
  • Use the Cite-While-You-Write plug-in for Word to cite sources as you write

NOTE:

One of the most serious academic offenses is plagiarism.  Using RefWorks and EndNote Web to document your sources is essential.  For help with your writing skills, you may make an appointment at Academic Support Services.  The Purdue Online Writing Laboffers excellent suggestions for writing and citing materials.
