Integrating Moodle and RefWorks 

Providing meaningful reading lists to students is an incredibly difficult task – from obtaining them from lecturers, loading them onto a system, creating durable links to resources from different ejournal providers, providing access to digitised documents etc. At Solent University, we started to look at the best way we could create this information and provide it to students, ideally within the VLE, accessible at time and point of need.

Following on from the OU’s Telstar project, we now use a RefWorks [bibliographic software] integration within Moodle to create reading lists that display in our Harvard SSU customised style (as well as standard APA 6th and OSCOLA 4th).  We are trying to make access to Reading lists and referencing as easy as possible for our students but we still have a long way to go!
