We are pleased to announce revised eligibility criteria for institutional members to access the SLANSW Referencing Generator for free.
There are a number of free referencing generators available to assist students to appropriately acknowledge information sources. That said, many such tools come with a heavy advertising component. We are delighted to be able to continue to offer CiteMaker to schools in which our members work.
Michael Hargreaves from Citemaker has generously agreed to continue the provision of our free-of-charge SLANSW branded referencing generator service for schools who are institutional members for the coming membership year (1 July 2020 - 30 June 2021).
This offer is available for schools charging less than $5,000 annual tuition fees and Michael has now extended the eligibility criteria to include member schools with less than 1,100 Year 7 - 12 students.
Eligible schools who register their interest in gaining access to SLANSW's CiteMaker will be provided with their own unique URL (as is provided for paid subscriptions).
This free SLANSW branded version of CiteMaker does differ from the full subscription version in that:
- Only APA6 and/or Harvard (Australian) styles are offered;
- Citations are export-only (so students do not have the option to save their citations to the myCites database, as per the paid version);
- ISBN search and automatic citation generation will be limited to Google searches and WorldCat is not included; and
- Because students cannot save citations, the CiteNotes function for taking notes is not included.
That said, the SLANSW version of CiteMaker does have full citation generation capabilities which includes access on multiple platforms, including tablets and smartphones.
If your school meets the above eligibility criteria, please submit an expression of interest to Karen Bale at firstname.lastname@example.org and include ‘CiteMaker’ in the subject line.
