How can we improve Summon?

Add Cite Them Right as option for exporting citations

Cite Them Right is a citation service similar to Citace.com and EasyBib that is gaining popularity. To support individuals and institutions who want this option, we would add this option where other citation services are currently offered in Summon. Institions should be able to choose to turn this on or off as an option. It should be included as an option under the Export To lists found in the menu behind the elipses (...) menu for each search result. It should also be available as an option for Export To in the Saved Items folder.

    Ditto for Primo please, as in common with many UK Universities this is what we offer. The version in Primo is inaccurate, eg puts publishers in journal references.

    We've had students being marked down for incorrect citations so it's really important that any citation formats we offer are correct - which for us means Cite Them Right.

    Yes please to this. We use Cite them Right as our standard Uni wide referencing system and if Summon could reflect this it would be brilliant. (Yes we know we can do this via RefWorks, so long as the title isn't in capitals, but that's an added complication for our users.)

    Cite them Right online is widely used in the UK for UG students, so making this link would be really good to boost sales of Summon in the UK and provide the customer with a useful business solution.
