RefWorks is a web-based reference management tool.

What does that mean? Would you like to create your own personal database for keeping track of references pertinent to your classroom teaching or your research? RefWorks can do that. Are you writing a paper and want to format the citations in the correct format for submission to a particular journal? RefWorks can do that, too. Learn more about RefWorks in this combination demonstration and hands-on session designed to introduce you to the basics of using RefWorks.

Participants will be able to:

  • Observe basic functions of RefWorks
  • Create a RefWorks account and use it immediately
  • Import references from PubMed to RefWorks
  • Use MS Word in conjunction with RefWorks to create a bibliography in a particular style
