It came to our attention that EasyBib.com had some downtime this past weekend. We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused to our educator and student users, especially during finals time. We do our best to ensure that our services are unhampered, but unfortunately errors do occur. We have solved the issue and we are taking all necessary precauations to ensure that this does not happen again in the future.
We value each and every one of you and we are committed to making sure that you have the best experience possible when using our services.
If you have any questions or concerns, let us know. Schools or institutions subscribing to EasyBib should contact their account manager, while MyBib Pro customers should use the “Contact Us” form.
Thanks for using EasyBib, and for your patience this past weekend.
All the best,

Project Information Literacy has been at the forefront of new research pertaining to student information literacy skills since its inception in 2008. Imagine Easy Solutions has been fortunate enough to work with Project Information Literacy for almost two years.
We are honored to have EasyBib featured in its newest study, Learning the Ropes: How Freshmen Conduct Course Research Once They Enter College. This year’s report has a heavy focus on high school students transitioning into college, something we have also explored during our PD webinars.
EasyBib has 40 million users every year; the platform provides ample reach to students while they’re doing research. Caity and I have surveyed EasyBib users about their thoughts on Wikipedia and plagiarism, and were truly honored when PIL’s head researcher, Alison Head, reached out to us earlier this year.Read More
Yesterday was an exciting day here at EasyBib; we published our free resources page on our blog! After our users requested one page with all of our content series, infographics, flyers, handouts, stickers and bookmarks on one page — we created it. You can find the resource page linked through any of the pages on the blog.
What can you find on the resources page? A whole lot. Find the full list after the jump!Read More
We were very happy to host our first international guest on our PD series this week, Dr. Doug Belshaw of the Mozilla Foundation (from Northumberland, England!). Doug’s doctoral dissertation was on digital literacies, and he is at the forefront of exciting new changes to digital literacy in education. (His doctoral thesis is open and available online, and fascinating.)
Doug works on various education projects at the Mozilla Foundation, including taking the lead on Mozilla’s Web Literacy Standards. Many of the participants during yesterday’s event were interested to see how they can implement the Web Literacy Standards in their instruction to teach information and digital literacy skills.
Lots of useful resources were shared and demonstrated during the session. We’ll review some of them in this blog post, but a full list is available on EasyBib.
In case you missed it, you can watch the archived recording below. You can also browse the website he uses in the presentation here.
