One of the worst parts about writing a paper for school is the bibliography. Getting all of the required information from a book can be a major pain, and it can add a substantial amount of time to your workload. Thankfully, the Chrome extension RefDot makes getting sources from a book as easy as possible, and will save valuable time when working on a paper up against the deadline.
RefDot easily grabs the information you need from Amazon’s listing for the item. When you are viewing a book on Amazon, the link to reference the item will automatically appear in the top right corner of the screen. If you click that, the handy extension will grab all the information about the book from Amazon’s database and store it for later access.
You can click the extension’s icon to view and edit your references and add new ones manually. You can click “View List” to access your references and edit, and export them to .txt or .html. This extension is a must have for students who want to make referencing books easier.
