Workshops on how to effectively use RefWorks (bibliography-creating tool)

The Libraries invite students, faculty, and staff to attend a workshop on how to save time and trouble in creating bibliographies and endnotes, by using RefWorks - a resource on the homepage of the Libraries' website (www.libraries.rutgers.edu). The Libraries will be offering the same two and a half hour workshop in the mornings on two different days - Friday March 8th and Friday March 29th. Both workshops start at 9:30 am and will be held in Room 413, on the fourth floor of Alexander Library.

RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and database manager that allows users to create and manage their own personal bibliographic database. RefWorks is free to members of the Rutgers community. The Basic RefWorks workshop helps users create RefWorks accounts, acquire references of all types (books, journals, media, etc.) from numerous sources, organize and manage their bibliographies, and insert references into MS Word documents. This workshop will also introduce several useful RefWorks tools, such as RefShare (to share bibliographies with both Rutgers and outside collaborators) and RefGrab-It (to acquire bibliographic information from web- based resources, such as Google Scholar). Finally, the tool Write-N-Cite will demonstrate how to easily incorporate references into an MS Word document and automatically create end notes and a bibliography. No prior knowledge of RefWorks is required.
