Library Offers RefWorks Workshops


    The University of Delaware Library will present four workshops during the fall 2010 on RefWorks, a web-based research management system provided by the University of Delaware Library. RefWorks is used to create and manage references, export references from databases, and generate bibliographies or reference lists. RefWorks is available from the Library databases web page [www.lib.udel.edu/db].

    The workshops will be “Transition to RefWorks 2.0,” “Citing Using APA Style and RefWorks,” “Introduction to RefWorks” and “RefWorks: Beyond the Basics.”

    Transition to RefWorks 2.0 offers the next-generation of the RefWorks research management system. RefWorks 2.0 has a new user interface which is easier to navigate and more visually appealing. The workshop offers RefWorks users an overview of the arrangement and features of RefWorks 2.0 and is intended for those who are already familiar with RefWorks and is not intended for new users.
