Selections from the toolkits of our librarians
Video editing software for Mac and iOS. Import video, organize or delete video clips, add a soundtrack, add subtitles, and create special effects.
Mendeley assists at every stage of the research process, from gathering research and annotating PDFs to organizing citations and creating bibliographies.
ScreenFlow software is popular with faculty and students as an easy way to capture video of your desktop or laptop screen. It is available for your use in the Weigle Information Commons (in the Vitale Digital Media Lab, the Macbook laptops in the WIC Seminar Room and all Mac stations in the group study rooms and open areas). SAS Computing provides access to ScreenFlow at the MMS lab rooms in DRL.
Scrivener is a word processing program that allows users to organize drafts and manuscripts into chapters and sections, manage research notes, and import documents such as PDFs and Word documents. It also has a corkboard feature for organizing notes on "index cards" visually, and a full-screen writing mode that blocks out other windows to allow the user to concentrate on writing.
Snapz Pro X is software for Mac that allows you to record anything on your screen and save it to a QuickTime movie or screenshot, which can be put on the web, emailed, or sent anywhere.
