The Oberlin College Writing Center and the Oberlin College Libraries can provide assistance with the writing of your research paper and citations. The Writing Center provides assistance with writing mechanics, including citation, developing a research question or thesis, developing an argument to support your thesis, as well as, reviewing your paper for sentence-level corrections and editing for flow and clarity. The libraries provide support for citation, including using citation management software such as Refworks, provides access to citation manuals, and assists with developing a research question or thesis relative to available sources, as well as, assisting in developing search strategies to find the best sources for your research.
ProQuest RefWorks is a citation management tool that helps researchers gather, manage, store and share information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies in a wide variety of styles. Extensive tutorials are available. The Write-N-Cite plugin allows you to cite sources while creating a paper in either Word or Google Docs, automatically building your cited references list as you write.
