RefWorks users @ UC

Important announcement for University of Canberra RefWorks users

The University has replaced our RefWorks subscription with one to EndNote Online and will cease supporting access to RefWorks on the 31st December 2016.

What do I need to do?

Save your RefWorks database before the cut-off date and import it into another referencing service. You can find instructions on how to do this here: http://canberra.libanswers.com/a.php?qid=1291528

We recommend using EndNote Online, a free product which can also sync your references and saved articles with EndNote Desktop (available from the Library and pre-installed on all student computers) and the EndNote iPad app. Other features include easily sharing groups of articles with other people you are working with, linking to full text articles in the Univerisity’s databases, and an integration with Web of Science which shows how many times an article has been used by other researchers (times cited).

You can find a quick reference sheet about Endnote Online here: http://endnote.com/sites/en/files/m/pdf/en-online-qrc.pdf

What if I miss the cut-off date?

RefWorks will be able to extract your database for you if you cannot access your account.

Can I continue to use RefWorks next year?

If you wish to take out your own subscription to RefWorks, please contact  refworks.support@proquest.com for more information.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact ask@canberra.libanswers.com

“Discover More”…in the Library.

Following on from Library & Information Week (23-29 May) and the “Discover More” theme, the Library have put together a small collection of books & reports from our rare and Deposit collection highlighting the history of the University of Canberra Library. Housed in the Library display case on Level B, we encourage you all to visit and have a read of some early interesting facts as to how the Library came to be way back in 1968-69.

We pose the question “Why was the Library never officially opened, but the plaque uncovered in the Library archives, dated 1972? It remains a mystery, but the plaque is included in our display.

Can you provide some insights? The Library is encouraging all UC staff  to share any thoughts and experiences of their time within the Library. Perhaps you know of staff or students who would love to share their Library stories as well? All stories, snippets and quotes can be emailed to loans@canberra.edu.au
