Get your citations on Facebook with CiteMe

Posted by sarahw9 on 23 July, 2008

CiteMe is a Facebook application from OCLC that searches Worldcat and converts results into

CiteMe

CiteMe

different citation formats for you (currently: APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA, Turabian).  Type in the title, author, subject, or isbn and it formulates the citation.

Compared to using Refworks / Endnote there isn’t any advantage as 

you can only do one at a time, and from a UoL perspective it doesn’t cover the referencing styles we mostly use anyway.  Still interesting to think of how lots of tools could enhance students studies. 

Any volunteers to write a Facebook application for our inhouse referencing styles?
