Other Tools

Pivot - ProQuest  

Pivot is an indispensable source of information on funding opportunities. The database provides access to a directory of sponsors, scholarships, fellowships, research assistantships, and grants proposals. As this is a tool designed for use by users affiliated with academic institutions, it quickly and easily brings together people with specific interests with funding opportunities in those areas. 

RefWorks - ProQuest  

This is one of the leading citation tools. It allows users to create an account, save, and organize their search and research materials in a specific citation style such as the Modern Language Association (MLA) and American Psychological Association (APA). The “Write-N-Cite” plug in for Microsoft Office (available for Windows and Mac) enables users to cite their sources directly from their paper without switching to any other application. By using the “RefGrab-it” tool, users can cite any online source by importing it to their RefWorks account. It is as simple as importing the source easily, with one click right from their internet browser.
