Vicki Davis gives a good overview of downloading, editing and then, crucially, ideas for how one might cite a section taken from Google video – as it’s something that the citation guides haven’t really taken on board … yet.
The video that she has about citing, uses CitationMachine, something that David Warlick has helped to develop. I’ve had a look, but as it doesn’t have Harvard as one of the citation systems, I’m not sure how useful it will be. I’ve looked at Zotero – the Firefox plugin that I’m using, and that has options for Video/ TV/ Radio so that should allow the same sort of data. Zotero doesn’t automatically output as Harvard – but I can output the data in a form that EndNote can import. (Which I can’t test immediately with a record for a video, as I’ve not got EndNote on this PC).

  1. It is exciting that the new Office VISTA includes citation generators and will probably include the Harvard version (It includes everything else.) you might decide to download the beta version.

    Good luck and thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. I have heard really good things about Office 2007 (I assume that’s the same as Vista?) – however, when I saw the leaked prices in the UK – I thought it wasn’t worth getting used to it, as I can’t see me getting it any time soon!
