New EasyBib Subscription

The UHS Library now subscribes to EasyBib, an online tool that helps streamline all of your note-taking and research citations.  Keep all of your research assignments saved in one convenient location. EasyBib will assist you in generating your bibliography in proper MLA, APA, or Chicago format.  From there you can export your citations to a Word, Pages, Google Docs, etc. document.

Even easier - download the free EasyBib app to your iPad and simply scan the ISBN barcode of any book you are citing, using their free built in scanner.  EasyBib will keep a running list of all of those barcodes you scan and generate the proper citations in a format you can then email to yourself.

UHS Library now on Pinterest

The UHS Library is now on Pinterest!  Another social media tool, Pinterest is a great way to explore interests and ideas in a very visual format.  And it's free.  Keep up to date with the UHS Library by following the username uhslibrary1.  Some of the UHS Library boards include research resources, summer reading books being read by students and staff, magazine subscriptions at the UHS Library, and more.  Register for an account yourself and begin pinning all of those lovely images/resources you see on the web!
