How to teach RefWorks Basics
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 approximat ly 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. 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.
