UBC Student Office 365 and Write-N-Cite
Students who have recently downloaded UBC Student Office 365 can currently no longer install the Write-N-Cite add-in for Word that allows one to generate in-text citations and a reference page. This does not affect anyone who has purchased their own individual subscription or anyone who is already working with Write-N-Cite. (March 29, 2021)
Public workstations with Write-N-Cite installed:
UBC Library's workstations have Write-N-Cite installed on MS Word. Visit: https://services.library.ubc.ca/computers-technology/public-computers/ This link also includes instructions for accessing the Remote Labs.
