Flow is available through Summon

Yesterday I told you about how Flow was coming to Summon, but wasn’t yet available. Well, astute folks have noticed that the “Log in” link is now available in Summon. (I’ve updated that post to reflect the present tense rather than the future tense.)

Patrons can create a free Flow account and save their research into their account and share it with project members or other researchers. The account is not tied to their affiliation at GVSU, so they can take their research with them when they go to grad school, to a job, or to another institution.

I met with Julie and Sarah and Jeff this morning to talk about the transition away from the paid version of RefWorks, and folks from R&I will be crafting language to explain the change and recommend alternatives (including Flow). I’ll get the website and LibGuides (and other applications that interface with RefWorks) updated once the content has been created.
