Quick Cite

It would have been great if the student built app for Referencing@Portsmouth (finished last summer) could have been made live, but sadly – despite our best efforts – it wasn’t to be.  However, this now exists:

which might be worth taking at look at.  However, it does cost 59p (our app would have been free), relies on a camera (which rules out older iPod Touches, iPads etc), relies on ISBN barcodes (which rules out books published before 1970 or so), and the screenshots don’t reveal whether their output styles match our guidance or not – so let the buyer beware!
