RefME becoming Cite This For Me

We have important news for users of the popular free referencing tool RefMe. It has been announced today that RefMe will be changing to Cite This For Me on February 28th 2017. Full details on this news can be found on the RefMe website.

If you have a RefMe account you will still have access to your account and saved Reference lists until June 1st, 2017, but you will need to export them before this date or you will lose them.

If you want to create an account for Cite This For Me it will cost £6.99 a month but you are able to generate a reference list without creating an account. However without an account your reference list won’t be saved for future use.

There are a number of reference management tools on the market and Swansea University’s supported solution is EndNote. This comes in a free online version and the full desktop software, which is available on open access PCs in the library. As well as storing all your bibliographic references, EndNote can find and store PDFs plus it integrates neatly with Word to insert and format references. If you’d like to find out more about EndNote please look at our EndNote Library Guide.

 

Extra study space for exam period

Are you looking for a quiet place to revise for your exams? Room 117 and room 128 in the School of Management building are both available for silent study Monday to Friday from 08.00 to 18.00 until the 27th January.

If you live close to Singleton Campus, please also check the extra study space that is available there.

This is in addition to the usual study space in the library. Bay Library is open 24/7 as usual. There are silent study rooms available in the North Wing if you need to work somewhere without distractions.

Please look out for our friends from the Students’ Union who will be handing out free tea and coffee at prearranged times in the library as part of Study Aid 17.

Good luck with your exams!
