REFWORKS Off Campus Access Group Code RWMTA Ways REFWORKS can be used: 1. Keep track of references 2. Share references with a group 3. Prepare bibliographies for papers, theses, and books 4. Prepare lists of items from our library catalogue and elsewhere 5. Prepare reading (read) lists 6. Inserting references in a paper and preparing works cited (WNC) Write-N-Cite is integrated with Microsoft Office 7. Keep track of, share, and store PDF files 8. Merge lists and remove duplicates 9. Style Guides from several hundred of publishers 10. Mobile app – accessible from anywhere with Internet connection
PROLA PROLA The server was launched in 1998, with an archive of online copy of Physical Review from 1985 through 1996. Starting in January 2001, it was expanded to include all APS journal content back to 1893. We also have begun a year- by-year migration of recent material into PROLA. For the year 2003, 1999 material has been migrated. In 2004, 2000 will be migrated and so forth. Reviews of Modern Physics is now part of PROLA as well. The complete archive consists of all of Physical Review back to 1893, all of Physical Review Letters back to 1958, and all of Reviews of Modern Physics back to 1929. So for most titles content from 2009 has been added or will be shortly.
Bookmyne Versions iPhone iPad iTouch these were the release versions Android version Bookmyne 4.0 is also available. Initial number of potential SIRSIDYNIX clients using RIM Blackberry was too low to merit development of a Blackberry version However, Bookmyne version 5, to be released later this year, is being developed in such a way that it will work on the new Blackberry devices being released.
