RefME is off to Columbus, Ohio for the next few days, joining the largest gathering of school librarians and administrators in the US. From the 5th to 7th November we will be at the American Association of School Librarians Conference.
Since we launched RefME institute at ALA San Francisco earlier this year, we’ve been partnering up with many institutions both in the US and UK wanting to support their students in using the world’s best, easiest and most accurate citation tool (for free).
The conference is not just a great place to network and showcase new educational technologies, however. The agenda is packed with workshops and discussions about how educators can enable students to learn better in the digital age, and citations form a key part of that picture. A recent poll conducted by the AASL showed that 54% of students would be less likely to cite their sources if they didn’t have research management tools, but over half of those asked found it hard having to navigate new tools.
Our Head of Academic Partnerships Jock Wright will be around to answer questions and show more librarians and school administrators how their institutions can also benefit from RefME with free set-up and no annual license fees or contractual tie-ins.
