GPLL236 - Using RefWorks for Graduates: Citations and Bibliographies Simplified

In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to use RefWorks, a web-based tool that you can use to organize the references you find in library catalogues and databases, insert citations in your papers, and prepare bibliographies or reference lists quickly and effectively, in a wide variety of citation styles (e.g. APA, MLA, Chicago, et cetera). We will also discuss how to integrate RefWorks with Microsoft Word using RefWorks' Write'n-Cite tool, and how to share your RefWorks folders and citations (e.g., for collaborative projects or to disseminate reading lists). No experience with RefWorks is necessary.

Learning Objectives

1. Use RefWorks to manage citations and automate the creation of bibliographies

My top study tip? Use RefWorks to its full potential! Now I don't need to worry (as much) about referencing.
