Workshops -- Introduction to Citation Management Software

Introduction to Citation Management Software 

New to citation management software?   The software is useful in capturing, storing, and organizing references and creating bibliographies.  Not sure which one is right for you? Check MIT Overview of Citation Software.  (Another consideration, does your department or your research colleagues prefer one of these citation management software?  You may want to use the same one.)

New APPsearch is here

Belk Library has a new version of APPsearch!

You will now see a new interface, which has the power to simultaneously search across content from over 100 library databases and the library catalog.

APPsearch will now provide the user with a customized searching experience, based on a variety of search options and tools. Best of all, the new APPsearch displays results super fast.

Coming Soon: New and Improved APPsearch

APPsearch will soon have a new search engine. This summer, we are switching to EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). You will notice a new interface (but familiar to those who already search EBSCO products), basic and advanced search options, searching simultaneously across content from over 100 library databases and the library catalog, along with quick display of search results.

You can try it out now and tell us what you think. We are planning on going live at the end of June.
