Citations for scholarly literature from a wide variety of disciplines. Customize Google Scholar for VCU by selecting 'settings' and then 'library links.' Select both Virginia Commonwealth University and Open WorldCat; click on 'save.' If you plan to use RefWorks, select 'settings' again, and then select RefWorks in the Bibliography Manager section; click on 'save.'
