Looking around in “Academic Search Complete” or some other EbscoHOST database and suddenly need the help of a Librarian? Well, now you can get it.
At the search result level within EbscoHOST databases (or at the article level, if you are browsing a journal), an AskAway box will pop up on the right.
Don’t know what “AskAway” is? Read about it here.

May 26th, 2011 by Patricia Foster | Comments Off on Write N Cite III is compatibile with Office 2010
Write-n-Cite III is compatible with MS Word 2010. There are some differences if you are installing Write-n-Cite III with Word 2010. First Word 2010 must be completely installed on the local computer and then the computer must be restarted before Write-n-Cite III can be installed. Additionally, Microsoft now offers a version of Word 2010 called Click and Run that installs a virtualization handler to your local computer and then runs the application on the web. Write-n-Cite III is not compatible with this version of Word. The full application must be installed on the local computer for Write-n-Cite III to recognize the installation of MS Word 2010.
