RefWorks is the bibliographic tool supplied by the University which allows you to keep all your references and article attachments in one place and to create bibliographies easily from wherever you are – on or off-campus.
The Library regularly runs courses on RefWorks. There are also Webinars run by RefWorks and a list of these for May can be found below:
Using RefWorks to Quickly Import Citations and Write a Paper (30 minutes)
In this session, you’ll learn how to directly import citations from two online databases. Then you’ll see how to quickly create a bibliography for a paper two ways: 1) from a list or folder of citations in your RW account and 2) with in-text citations via the one line/cite view method. This session is primarily for undergraduates or beginning RefWorks users.
