Google Drive Add-ons for Students

If you’ve ever had the unfortunate experience of not being able to access your paper because it was erased from the library computers, then you know that the librarians here are big fans of composing your documents or spreadsheets on Google Drive. That way changes you make are automatically saved. You will not lose your work, even if there is a power outage in the library. True story. Students already have a Google account through their Pipeline email. Drive can be accessed through that email account.

If you are looking for increased functionality, you can always add additional features through Add-ons. You can access Add-ons on the menu located on top of the document.


Here are some of the best Add-ons available for students:

Automatically cite books, journal articles, and websites just by entering in the titles or URLs. Format citations in MLA, APA, and Chicago style.


Consistency Checker
To catch all those mistakes that spellchecker does not.


Easy Accents
It pretty much does what you would think.


Hello Fax
Because you’d be surprised how often we are asked. By the way, there is a fax machine in the campus bookstore.


Add-ons for Google Sheets can be accessed the same way.
