RefWorks is a free web-based bibliography and database manager that allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases and other various sources. You can use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds.
Did you know:
1. You can save your PubMed search.
2. Run the same search each week (or month) for updated articles (My NCBI).
3. Store your PubMed citations (and the full-text) in RefWorks.
4. Use Write-N-Cite to insert your citations into your Word document.
5. Create a bibliography for your paper.
Contact the libraryâ€™s reference department email@example.com where one of the librarians can assist you in setting up these available services. You can take it one step at a time.

RefWorks in 15 Minutes
While the ideal way to teach users the basic features of RefWorks is to conduct a full training session, we realize that in some situations you may have only a few minutes to demonstrate the power of RefWorks. During this 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.
