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.
This week we’ve seen some of the fantastic new furniture for the library being unpacked. We thought that we’d give you a preview of what you can expect to see in the new Bay Library.
The School of Management library team have now moved in to the new Bay Campus Library and we’re busy ensuring that everything is ready for our grand opening on 1st September.
The shelves are in and the books will be arriving later this month.
Here’s a recent video showing the new shelving being put in to place:
Keep watching the blog and our social media for more updates, as we count down to the opening!
If you’ve been over to the ISS News blog lately, you’ll see that we’ve got some more information about the book move to the Bay Library in August. There are more details on ISS News, but some important things to remember are:-
- Levels 1 and 2 of the LIC at Singleton Park Campus will be closed after the 21st August so we can pack up the books
- The LIC will remain open and you will be able to access Levels 3 and 4 as normal
- If you need anything from Levels 1 or 2 while they’re closed, please ask at the Issue Desk. We’ll do our best to fetch them for you, but if an item as already been packed up and moved to the Bay, you will need to wait until after 1st September for it
So, if you know you’re going to need any books over the summer, it’s a good idea to borrow them now!
The Bay Library opens at 8am on the 1st September. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
Interior of the new Bay Library. Books coming soon!
