RefME

The Library has set up RefME for the University of Buckingham citation styles. RefME is a free tool to create citations, reference lists and bibliographies, and can be used with a WebClipper in Google Chrome.

It has over 7,500 referencing styles available and can create projects, annotate web pages and add quotes from books and journals.

RefME is easy to use so that staff and students can create their own account. Go to www.RefMe.com and log in using your University of Buckingham email address and then create your own password. Click on Styles and type in Buckingham under Choose your style and you will see the University of Buckingham citation styles for selection. Then create and export a bibliography. However please check details like year selected from the webpage, the correct edition of the book you are using, and that the style is correct.

Please do ask your subject librarian if you would like help in using RefME.

The Librarians will be introducing RefME to students over the next few weeks.


Paul E. H. Davis Room at Hunter Street Library

On 12 June 2014 a new archive was opened at the Hunter Street Library and officially named The Paul E. H. Davis Room in honour of University of Buckingham graduate and Honorary Research Fellow, Dr Paul Davis, who has been a driving force for the collection. More information about Dr Davis can be found here.

The room contains rare and academically significant materials relating to 19th-century literature, particularly Victorian journalism, and is open by appointment to students, staff and the public between 09:00 and 17:00 on weekdays.

To arrange a visit please contact the Assistant Librarian, Peta Yates, on +44 (0)1280 820 106, or at peta.yates@buckingham.ac.uk.
