The Bodleian Education Library team is being recognised for a project which uses technological solutions to help students locate reading list items and reference their work correctly.
The team worked with the online reference management tool Mendeley to produce accurate bibliographic references, annotated with information from the tutors’ reading lists and with live links to the books & articles. The work, which starts with reading lists submitted by course-organiers, produces files that students can import to their own reference management software and then use to bring up the texts they need and to cite sources in their own written work. In addition, they Mendeley files are used to build online WebLearn versions of the reading lists for each course.
Also recognised in the programme is Jennifer Allen, doctoral student and member of Green Templeton College who was awarded a project grant entitled “Becoming a researcher: a personal and professional development course for MSc students.” The project develops an online version of the ‘Becoming a researcher’ courses which was successfully piloted in 2014.
