Rambi to Refworks

Rambi lets you “push” records to Refworks in much the same way as does the University of Minnesota Libraries catalog.

Examples shown are in the English language view option (top left corner of Rambi page), with search example Qumran food.


If you want to send an individual record to Refworks, use the Actions drop-down menu from the record (not from the results list level).

STEP 1:  Mark the records by clicking on the star next to each record , at the Results list level. In the example below the first and third records have been marked.

Student Success & Library Use

Research at the U of MN linking student success to library use is in the spotlight again, this time on Boopsie for this good news report from the Association of College and Research Libraries.

Digital resources are great, of course, and we have subject specific pages too – but don’t dismiss a visit to your library. There are great print resources in each one, and friendly helpful staff – and you can find a coffee shop in Walter and Wilson too.

Excerpt from the entry in Boopsie:
“As college libraries foster accessibility and student engagement, they contribute to the success of their students through increased graduation rates, increased retention rates, and higher GPAs. When college libraries contribute to student success, they increase institutional prestige while preparing future leaders to meet the challenges of tomorrow’s world.”
