RefWorks Basics

WHERE: 14N-132 (Digital Instruction Resource Center – DIRC)

WHEN: Wednesday, April 4, 5-6pm

RefWorks is a web-based resource designed to help you to organize references and create a bibliography. RefWorks allows you to search, retrieve relevant citations, and build your bibliography. It allows users to create individual or group accounts, and makes it easy to write papers, or post your results to web pages.

This session will be a hands-on practicum. Attendees will create a personal web account and create a database of cited literature by importing references from resources such as Barton, Web of Science, PubMed and other sources of published literature. You will learn how to organize your references, and to generate manuscripts and bibliographies.
