Cite This For Me

All Edge Hill RefMe users were emailed about 6 weeks ago to let them know that the service was changing.

RefMe has now become Cite This for Me and you can no longer access RefMe.  If you use the app or the RefMe website you will be directed to the brand new Cite This For Me service.

The account migration process has started.  You will be able to login into Cite This For Me – although you do need to set a new password. The first time you login – it  will send an email instructing you to set a new password. Cite This For Me have reported that the migration of references may take a couple of days so if your references aren’t there yet, please check back in a few days.

If you were using RefMe and had references in the app, they will move over and you will have free access to Cite This For Me for the rest of the academic year 2016/17, however, Cite This For Me is a paid for app and has different functionality to RefMe and may not be as suitable once Edge Hill free access has terminated.

To help you manage your references,  why not take a look at RefWorks which is provided by Learning Services.

Here is the current RefWorks guide or you can contact us via ehu.ac.uk/askus

LS0390 RefME PlasmaCompiling a bibliography can be a daunting prospect – one way to help you get the hang of what’s required is to download the Reference Me app (RefME). It captures the citations of the resources you have used and will create a bibliography for you.

If you are interested in using this app here’s what to do next:

  • Install the app onto your device, either through Google Play Store or iTunes
  • Or go directly to the  Reference Me  website

Now create an account and then you’re ready to start.

To create a reference, hold your device over the barcode of a book or journal article, your device camera takes an image shot of the barcode (see image below) and then generates the reference as it would appear within a bibliography. You are given the option to add a citation and to do this you simply add the page number (s) and the citation will appear!

One added bonus is that the app now includes the new Edge Hill Harvard style for you to use. Try the app out and if you have any questions please see staff at the AskDesk in the University Library, Aintree or Woodlands.

Struggling with Harvard referencing?

If you’re still getting to grips with using Harvard referencing, you may like to know that there is a new guide to Harvard Referencing which may help. The new guide is a revised version of the existing document but is now easier to read and has been updated with more contemporary examples. It will demonstrate how to reference the more commonly used sources in your assignments, such as books, journals and websites and will also provide you with explanations about the different ways to reference such as using direct quotations and paraphrasing.

Don’t worry though if you’re using (or even continue to use) the previous guide issued in September 2011; the new guide does not change any of the principles or conventions for referencing, we just think it is a better format for helping you to navigate the rules of referencing.
