Introduction to the New and Improved RefWorks

Logo

RefWorks is a web-based citation management tool used to import and organize citations and generate bibliographies or reference lists. A new and improved version of RefWorks will be released in 2016. In this workshop the new interface and capabilities of RefWorks will be explained. Topics covered include setting up an account, understanding the user interface for RefWorks, exporting citations from research databases, creating folders, organizing citations, storing full-text articles within RefWorks, and creating a bibliography or reference list. RefWorks is available from the Library Databases page [www2.lib.udel.edu/database/refworks.html]. The workshop is offered at no charge and is open to UD students, faculty and staff. Seating is limited and registration is required. For further information, email lib-workshops@udel.edu or call 302-831-2432.
