RefWorks in 15 Minutes

Need a refresher or want to learn more about REFWORKS (our premier bibliographic management tool), but don’t have the time? REFWORKS IN 15 MINUTES is an online class designed just for you! Dates and times are below.

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.
