Gandhi's Portswood ReferenceMe Southampton Takeover

New app RefME will have your dissertation bibliographies sorted out for you in MINUTES.

When it comes to writing essays, nobody really likes making their references, do they? You may have stayed up all night trying to submit your assignments in before the dreaded deadline, but then you remember that you have to make a bibliography before pushing past that finish line.

Widely considered to be the worst aspects of writing any piece of university work, flicking through library books and e-journals in a search for publisher names and publication dates is a tiresome chore. The only thing worse is trying to remember how you’re meant to format your bibliography!

However, that could be all about to change.

RefME is an award-winning iPhone and Android App that allows you to scan the barcode of a book and then automatically receive a reference for your essays. You can select whatever style of referencing that your subject uses such as Harvard, Oxford or MHRA – the list goes on!

Just scan the barcode of every book you use for your essay and the app does the rest

Their recently launched website also allows users to sync the references made on your mobile to your computer. Plus, you can export your bibliography and citations to email and Evernote too. This ensures students have no excuses to still be writing up their bibliography in the old fashioned way.
