Your Resource for Information Literacy
They say no news is good news, but even better news is that Instagrok is now integrated with EasyBib! Instagrok is a service that aids research by visually organizing information in a way that makes it easier to understand information. Some of their tools include integrated journals, webs, and galleries from other users. Using Instagrok is a great way to start a research project, especially to learn more about the topic and find sources.
Now when you do find a source on Instagrok, you can directly cite it using EasyBib! First, you have to log on to Instagrok (if you want, you can connect through your Google or Facebook account). Then search for your topic and go to the Journal page. At the bottom left corner, you should see a section called “Bibliography”. You can then export your citations to EasyBib and save it to your account.
Instagrok is a simple way for students to rapidly expand the number and types of sources they use in their research. Instagrok has also incorporated EasyBib’s credibility feature by allowing users to rate whether a source is credible or not. We’re really excited about this, and we hope you are too!
P.S. EasyBib subscribers, listen up! InstaGrok is also offering $20 off the year-long librarian account subscription for EasyBib librarians (regular price: $80/yr for up to 800 students) with the coupon code: EASYBIBLIB13 if they sign up by September 30! It doesn’t get much better than that, right?
