Refworks training - March 2016

Refworks Lite - Monday 

This webinar was hosted by Beth Reiten from Refworks. Beth showed how to set up and account and use the integration features to save results from Find IT straight into RefWorks without having to do anything more than save to the Find IT folder. 

Beth spent some time showing how to drag and drop a document into Refworks, highlight, annotate and share it. 

Also illustrated was the use of the 'export to Refworks' option in databases such as Science Direct and Academic Search Complete. This is a seamless process, exporting the file directly into Refworks without and need to work with a separate downloaded file. 

Citations can be entered manually, but the 'Export to Refworks' and 

Folder / Collection structures, and removing of duplicates were introduced. Sharing of citations, document and collections was outlined.

Selecting a citation style, and using  it to generate automatic bibliographies to copy and paste for use elsewhere was an interesting segment. 

Refworks tools, such as the browser citation capture tool 'Save to Refworks' and the word processing plug ins for MS Word and Google Docs. These can be used to insert in line citations, which can be used to generate a bibliography at the end of the document. 

A recording of the webinar is available online
