Just For KU: Complimentary Access to The New York Times

nytimage

Rohrbach Library, in partnership with the SGA, offers the KU community complimentary access to the nytimes.com site.  This service requires that you reactivate your NYTimes.com pass once a year.  If you’re getting a message that you’ve exceeded your article views, it’s time to update your pass.

It’s easy! Click on over to our authenticated institutional pass site at https://library.kutztown.edu/newyorktimes and login to reactivate your pass for another year.

Any questions? Contact RL’s Electronic Resources Librarian for more info.

NoodleTools to end July 15, 2018

books

Rohrbach Library will no longer subscribe to NoodleTools after July 15, 2018 – but no worries! There are a number of resources that will do the job right at your fingertips.

NoodleTools Express

This tool is for when you just need a quick citation. Create a single MLA, APA, or Chicago-style reference and copy and paste it into your document. No login required. Access other free NoodleTools resources here.

BibMe

BibMe is an automatic citation creator that supports MLA, APA, and Chicago formatting. Among the optional features available are a smart proofreader to add citations directly into your paper, offer suggestions on grammar and style, and help you to avoid unintentional plagiarism. Some free options come with use limitations.

EasyBib

EasyBib is very similar to BibMe in terms of functionality, offering a free bibliography generator providing automatic works cited and bibliography formatting for MLA, APA and Chicago/Turabian citation styles. EasyBib also includes an online plagiarism checker and grammar check service. Some free options come with use limitations.

OttoBib

Make a bibliography or works cited using just ISBN numbers. Easy, fast, free, and also available as a browser extension. Formatting options are MLA, APA, and Chicago/Turabian.

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Office Support provides thorough step-by-step instructions on adding citations and creating your bibliography in Word. There’s also a great section on automatic formatting and bibliography generation. Select from APA, MLA, Chicago, and other formats. These features apply only to Word for Office 365, Word 2016, Word 2013, Word 2010, and Word 2007.
