How to Teach RefWorks Basics

This session is primarily designed for those who will train on RefWorks and to learn how to do so quickly; however, those who are new to RefWorks can learn the basics here too.

While the ideal way to teach users the basic features of RefWorks is to conduct a 30—45 minute training session, we realize that you may have only a few minutes to demonstrate the power of RefWorks. During this approximately 30-minute session, you'll rapidly learn: how to create an account; direct export citations from two databases; create a folder; create a bibliography from a list of citations; and create a bibliography using Write N' Cite.

Beyond Direct Export: Five Other Ways to Import Information to RefWorks (40 minutes)

Direct export is but one method for adding references; In this webinar we will review these other methods, which are:

  • Importing from a text file
  • searching online catalogs or databases from within RefWorks
  • using a web browser tool called RefGrab-It to capture references from a web page
  • importing records from RSS feeds
  • entering references manually.
