RefWorks Write'N'Cite 4

The new RefWorks Write'N'Cite 4 (WNC4) toolbar for Word is now available on staff machines, and will be available in student computer labs during September.

How to install WNC4

On staff machines go to Start - All Programs - Program Installer - Select RefWorks Write-N-Cite-4 and click Install.

Once installed open Word and click on the RefWorks tab. Click login and enter the University of Leicester Group Code and your RefWorks username/password. If you do not know the group code then contact the library.

If you are editing a document that has citations which were inserted using the previous version of Write'N'Cite (WNC3/III) then in the RefWorks tab click Preferences - Convert previous version of WnC - Convert.

Please see the video below for an introduction to using the new Write'N'Cite toolbar:

We will be updating the library webpages with instructions for the new toolbar during September.

If you are using RefWorks on-campus and at home we recommend you use the same toolbar in both places. To update the Write-N-Cite toolbar at home: Login to your RefWorks account, go to Tools - Write-N-Cite and download the appropriate v4 for your computer.

If you need any help with WNC4 then please contact (for Law, Arts & Social Science) or (for Science, Technology & Medicine).

Finding our training

I had some feedback last week that searching PROSE is not the easiest way to find out what library training is on offer.

We sympathise with you! An alternative is to look at the list of training on our Researchers page

Or you can look at brand new guide to the Postgraduate Researcher Workshop Programme

Finding Company Reports Using Library Search

Company reports are an important source for anyone studying businesses and industries. We provide access to 100,000s reports through Mergent Online and Mergent Archive.  But we still hold print reports in the Library. These are mainly from banks, building societies and the transport sector.

You can find these reports with the print periodicals in the basement of the David Wilson Library.

To find them using the Library search follow the steps below.

1. Go to the Advanced Search. Change Material Type to 'Journal'.

2.To find a particular company use the name of company AND "annual report" or 
"annual report and accounts". Here's an example for the Alliance and Leicester Building Society:

3. To search for a sector, try Bank (or Building Society or Transport) AND "annual report" or 
"annual report and accounts". Use a date range if appropriate.
