RefWorks: A Researcher's Best Friend


    Students, faculty, and staff of the University of Delaware looking for a jump start on managing their research this fall are invited to look no further than the Library.  In Fall 2007 the University of Delaware Library will present a series of workshops on “RefWorks,” a web-based program provided by the Library that allows researchers to create and manage references, as well as generate bibliographies and export references from databases into their RefWorks account.

    Workshops are divided into two levels: “Intro to RefWorks” which covers setting up an account, managing references, and other basic features; and “RefWorks Advanced” which shows users how to export citations from research databases into a user’s personal RefWorks folder, and how to use the “Write ‘N Cit” feature that inserts notes and citations into documents.

    Workshops for “Intro to RefWorks” are offered on the following dates and times:

          Wednesday, September 19, 2007, from 3:00-4:00 p.m.;
          Tuesday, September 25, 2007, 2007, from 3:00-4:00 p.m.;
          Wednesday, October 10, 2007, from 3:00-4:00 p.m.;
          Tuesday, October 23, 2007, from 2:00-3:00 p.m.; and
          Wednesday, November 7, 2007, from 2:00-3:00 p.m.

    Workshops for “RefWorks Advanced” are offered on the following dates and times:

          Thursday, September 27, 2007, from 3:00-4:00 p.m.;
          Wednesday, October 17, 2007, from 3:00-4:00 p.m.; and
          Thursday, November 8, 2007, from 3:00-4:00 p.m.

    All RefWorks workshops will take place in Room 116A of the Morris Library and are free for all University of Delaware students, faculty, and staff.   Seating is limited, however, so registration is required.  To register online, visit http://www2.lib.udel.edu/usered/workshops/current.htm.
