Vancouver, Canada – December 12, 2012. SydneyPLUS International, provider of Library Knowledge Management software and solutions to Fortune 1000 companies, top law firms and government institutions, is pleased to announce the addition of a new Citation Export module. With the module, users will now be able to export SydneyPLUS data to select third party Citation Management systems such as RefWorks, EndNote, ProCite or Zotero.
The module is intended for use in research focused libraries like those found in think tanks, indexing companies, publishers, medical libraries and law libraries, as well as, any library where its users need to regularly write reports, essays, articles or theses. Following a simple process, users will be able to perform a search in the library's OPAC, tag selected works and, with a click of a ‘Citation' button, extract the records for import into their own Citation Management system. The citations being gathered can then be later used to quickly create bibliographies for inclusion in articles, essays, white papers and other research materials. The addition of a new Citation Export module will let libraries:
- Save on valuable research and bibliography compilation time
- Encourage library resource use by making the OPAC a resource for citations
- Establish firm wide standards for citations through a single universal export
How will it work? Using tags, the Citation Export module will map SydneyPLUS fields into export formats that Citation Management systems can import. Set-up in advance, administrators will need to create only one global export map for most popular Citation Management systems. This approach allows administrators to choose the relevant fields needed to establish and maintain a standardized citation format for all of their company's users. In addition, separate maps can be setup for distinct resource types such as books, journals and websites. Lastly, the Citation Export module is multilingual, which will enable users to cite references in many languages.
"We worked closely with our clients to develop this module," says SydneyPLUS Marketing Manager, Mark Maslowski, "and though it's barely out of test trials we are already getting very positive feedback on its ease of use and choice of vendors the module will connect with."
The Citation Export module is slated to be released by the end of 2012. Clients interested in learning more about this module should contact SydneyPLUS Sales at 604 278 6717 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your enquirers.
