Wizfolio Trial Extended

Are you looking for a powerful citation management tool?  Interested in trying another product besides RefWorks?  Trial access to Wizfolio has been extended for another year by Scholars Portal to allow unlimited use by researchers and students at all 21 Ontario universities.  The trial was originally scheduled to end in September 2010.

Try it out and let us know what you think, particularly if you are a current RefWorks user. A brief demo of Wizfolio will be included in the Advanced RefWorks session scheduled for the Winter 2011 term.  Video tutorials on how to use Wizfolio are also available online.
