  • 1. A Bibliographic Playlist: Online Reference, Recommender, & Collaborative Academic Tools Lorena O’English http://pbj.ctlt.wsu.edu/oenglish [email_address] Yahoo/MSN/AIM IM: wsulorena
  • 2. The Problem…
    • Keeping track of websites, articles, gray literature, and books for scholarly research can be difficult and require complex systems or multiple systems
    • Reference manager software = $-$$$
    • Research is often collaborative – but most reference management solutions are not (or at least not very…)
  • 3. A Potential Solution…
    • “ Social Bookmarking” sites allow you to share links to webpages with others (either specific people or the general public) i.e. http:// del.icio.us
    • Many social bookmarking sites only work with open websites, but now there are free academic bookmarking sites that allow access to scholarly articles (even those from subscription databases)
    • Increasingly these sites serve multiple functions : reference managers (including citation styles), discovery/ search engines, delivery/fufillment services, recommendation/suggestion engines, and collaborative spaces
    • .
  • 4. Obligatory Technical/Vocabulary Slides
  • 5. The OpenURL Standard Link Resolvers and Link Resolver (provides access to an appropriate copy for WSU users, if available)
  • 6. Digital Object identifiers (DOIs)
    • A way to identify something (generally an article, but could also be journals, books, data, etc.) along with associated info (metadata)
    • Provided by participating publishers through DOI Registration Agencies (i.e. www.crossref.org ) for “persistent identification of scholarly content.”
    • Can find in both electronic and print versions of articles
    • Generally takes to a publisher page, that may or may not provide fulltext links for WSU affiliates…it depends…
  • 7. Tagging as Metadata
    • Metadata: assigned data about data
    • “ Tagging” resources with descriptive indexing terms
    • "...bottom-up classifications which lack rigour..." ( The Observer ) - No promises of consistency...internally or externally...
    • A way to self-organize information (articles, website, blog posts, bookmarks, etc.)
    • Can be social and searchable
    Library of Congress Subject Headings Del.icio.us
  • 8. The Tools
    • Endnote Web (www.myendnoteweb.com)
    • Zotero (www.zotero.org)
    • Connotea (www.connotea.org)
    And CiteULike And RefWorks, EndNote, ProCite…
  • 9. EndNote Web
    • Good for current EndNote users
    • Web version provided free to all WSU affiliates via the WSU Libraries subscription to Web of Science
    • Librarian Jane Scales teaches EndNote Web classes via WSU’s HRS training office

    • Based on your computer, but can be loaded on a flash drive for portability and record transfer.
    • Can use with all open webpages, and many/most WSU Libraries article databases via OpenURL/ Find it@WSU .
    • Allows tags, notes, and screenshots to be associated with articles & other resources
    • Can import and export citations to EndNote, RIS and other reference manager formats using multiple citation styles; includes Microsoft Word plug-in for attaching citations (in correct style) to documents
    • Can attach (and search) associated PDFs
    • From the Center for History and New Media, at George Mason University.
    • Forthcoming: Web-based, collaborative and recommender capabilities…

    • Web-based and easily accessible
    • Can use with all open webpages, Griffin, and many WSU Libraries article databases via DOIs and OpenURL(or at the worst, copied or manual entry with no article full text)
    • Can import and export to EndNote, RIS, and other reference manager formats; resources can be archived
    • Can attach PDF files for specific articles
    • Can keep references private, limit to specified group, or make public
    • Collaborative – can share comments on resources (public, private, or group)
    • Recommender/suggestion engine - discovery beyond search via tagging, related articles, and related users (but you can search it as well )
    • Provided for free via scholarly journal Nature
