It is research paper season and this week we are sharing my favorite EASY and FREE referencing tool- RefME from Harvard University. RefME works in your web browser and has free apps for iOS and Android.

To get started, go to: https://www.refme.com

You will need to create a free account by entering your email and creating a password.

From your homepage, the first step is to name your project. This makes it super easy to keep references and notes for multiple projects separate.

On the right side of the page, select what type of resource you would like to create a reference for. You can search by title, author, ISBN, or keyword. If you have the free RefME app, you can scan book or resource barcodes to find references as well.

Once you added your source, you can easily add notes and quotes from the resource.

Once you are done adding sources and notes, you can click the export button to create an exportable list in a variety of formats including Evernote, Microsoft Office, and Bibtex (great for Google Docs).

Make sure you download the free app to make the most of RefME:

I hope you use RefME to make your research papers and projects a success!
Thank you, Pam Batchelor for sharing!!! :)
