Bibliographies!

It’s essay season in Edinburgh. There are high winds (seriously, we nearly hit gale force today) and I have high expectations on this spring day. I’m crunching through a marine policy paper and am blessing the folks who designed bibliography referencing software. I am infamous around the geosciences postgrad group as the unofficial Endnote ambassador. I attended a workshop offered by the Institute for Academic Development in the fall and converted immediately. Among many other functions, I can, in minutes :

1) search databases such as WebofKnowledge and Scopus

2) export article titles, authors, abstracts and other bibliographical information directly onto my desktop

3) search almost-every-single university database in two clicks

4) have a topic/keyword/date sorted library of relevant pdf files.

5) cite-as-I-write insert citations into my writing and have a bibliography created magically.

Highly recommend you consider Endnote or Mendeley and help yourself. #worksmart
