RefWorks is a bibliographic management tool which enables you to keep track of useful sources by allowing you to export your search results from most database searches directly to your personal database of references. You can also manually add other references found elsewhere. RefWorks will allow you to organise and sort references into topic folders as necessary or share these references between other users if appropriate. There is also a plug- in called Write -N-Cite, which can be installed on your computer to allow linking between your word processed document and your reference list. You can use these references to automatically create a bibliography in the citation style of your choice. It is a very quick way to produce an extensive bibliography. At first login, you will need to register and this needs to be done from the databases link via the ‘Library&ICT' tab of the University Portal
The Library also runs regular training sessions for Refworks which are advertised on the Library webpages from our Homepage and the ‘Library&ICT' tab of the Portal. You will be able to sign up for one of these general classes using the online form. Alternatively, contact the subject librarian on your campus to arrange an individual training session.
