Citing Blogs with RefWorks

RefWorks allows you to enter an RSS feed into your personal collection from the "search" menu. I knew this function was available and have recommended it to people that monitor journal table of contents.

RSS4Lib pointed out
another use that I had not thought of. You can use the same function to import blog entries or other website information into RefWorks. If you have ever cited a website, you know it can be a pain. You need to know things like when was it accessed, when was it created, and the URL. RefWorks saves all that information for you. Just pick your citation format and let RefWorks do all the work.

RefWorks is available to the Case community, and the links are available at the bottom of the Research Databases page.

They Are Blogging At Blackboard

Educate Innovate is the Blackboard blog about the convergence of education and technology.

They aim to use this forum to generate discussion about the topics, news, and latest trends impacting e-Learning and campus service offerings; and hope to provide insight about how technology can enable educational innovations for both.

They invite people to visit frequently to hear from their blogging team, guest bloggers, Q&A interviews with education industry thought leaders, movers and shakers, the people who work at Blackboard, and just plain interesting, cool people.

Case Wiki

Case Western now has an official Wiki.


A wiki is a collaborative web site where almost every page is editable by any user. It is my hope and the hope of other proponents of the wiki that it become THE central resource for information on campus.

The range of topics covered by the wiki can be as varying as your brain can conceive. We are currently working on integrating the wiki with other services offered by the university, such as this blog system.
