Instant Bibliographies!

As you polish those final papers, the thought of producing that pesky bibliography might be lingering in the back of your mind as a major chore still awaiting you.  But it doesn’t have to be so tedious!  Try out Refworks, the library’s new citation management system.  Set up a free account (under the FYI heading on the library’s homepage), input references manually or automatically import citations from our databases, and produce a bibliography in just about any major citation style (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.).

A warning to all of you eager users, though: just because it creates instant bibliographies doesn’t mean they are always perfect.  Proofread the bibliography a couple of times – make sure that all the information needed is included (and in the right place!) in each citation.  It’ll still save you lots of time in the long run!
