Find the cure for the bibliography blues.

Don't write another paper until you've checked out Refworks.

RefWorks is a citation management service (It helps you cite!) that allows you to import citations from online databases, (It creates works cited lists - automatically!) organize and manage these references, automatically format them within your papers and create instant bibliographies in a variety of styles. (Footnotes? Takes care of 'em!)

Did we mention it helps you cite?

Searching in WorldCat now available in Arabic

Users of OCLC’s FirstSearch may now navigate the service using a new Arabic language interface. This is OCLC’s most recent response to the growing number of international users using the FirstSearch service in their native languages. The Arabic language interface allows Arabic-capable users to navigate the series of search and retrieval screens in the FirstSearch service. WorldCat, OCLC’s cooperative catalogue, has more than 350,000 bibliographic records referring to Arabic materials held by OCLC member libraries. Users may now search in Arabic script and display the results in the language of the bibliographic record. Translations of online Help are also available. To optimally view the Arabic interface, users will need to have Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5 or higher, or Netscape version 6 or higher.

The database, WorldCat, contains the catalog records of thousands of libraries worldwide and provides information on millions of books, newspapers, maps, periodicals, government documents, etc. One of the most important resources for determining which library owns a particular work.
