How to Teach RefWorks Basics
September 19, 2013 from 2pm to 2:45pm – Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)
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. 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.

RefWorks Collaborative Features
September 24, 2013 from 2pm to 2:45pm – Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)
(Note:  This webinar requires knowledge of RefWorks basic features.)
Topics covered in this session:

  • How to share your folder or database
  • Optional features you can enable in your shared folder or database
  • How to search, download, print and export citations from a folder
  • How to contact the original author of a folder (via e-mail)
  • How to post comments to a folder or citation

Using RefWorks to Quickly Import Citations & Write a Paper
September 25, 2013 from 10am to 10:30am – Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)
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.

The New Write-N-Cite for Windows
September 26, 2013 from 11am to 11:45am – Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)
This webinar will demonstrate the newly designed Write-N-Cite on the Windows platform, which fully integrates with MicroSoft Word while leveraging the strength of a web-based Cloud service. The new Write-N-Cite will run on Word for Windows 2007 & 2010. You'll get the same features on either platform, and sharing documents between Mac and Windows computers is as easy as opening a file.

Key improvements of the new Write-N-Cite:

  • Auto formatting while you write
  • Seamless online/offline access to your references
  • Professional citation and bibliography customization tools
  • Auto managed footnote styles
