Need an article not available at the library? Request an ILL.

What is ILL? It stands for Interlibrary loan. When you need a journal article not subscribed by the library, the library can try an get a copy of the article for you from a different library. It's very rare when we cannot get an article.
So don't forget about ILL.

RefWorks -- What's that?

Simply put, RefWorks is a citation manager. You can export article information from the various databases -- EBSCO Academic Search Premier, ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health, OVID ADU Journals, Science Direct etc. to RefWorks. You can then alphabetize and create a "bibliography" in any style format you wish -- i.e. APA, MLA, Chicago Style etc.

This is useful if you are compiling many article citations. RefWorks will allow any type of citation -- books, websites, etc, but journal articles are very popular here at ADU.
Here is the link to the RefWorks Subject Guide to learn more http://adu.libguides.com/refworks
