The University of Iowa Libraries is excited to announce its purchase of a site license to the citation management software RefWorks. RefWorks allows you to import citations from databases like Academic Search Elite, organize your citations and share them with colleagues, as well as insert your citations into papers and format them in any of hundreds of bibliographic styles.
You may have heard of or used other citation management software such as Endnote or ProCite. RefWorks contains the same core functionality as these programs, but it has the advantage of being web-based, so your citations can be accessed from any internet-connected computer, not just the one where the software is installed. If you are currently using one of these other pieces of software and want to try RefWorks, your citations can easily be imported into RefWorks.
You can create as many RefWorks accounts as you need. For instance, create a personal account as well as one for your department, lab, or team. RefWorks makes it easy to share your citations with colleagues at the University of Iowa and beyond.
If you would like to learn more about RefWorks, please let us know. One of our librarians would be happy to come to your office to show you the software one-on-one. More information about RefWorks (including a link to set up your own account) can be found at http://www.lib.uiowa.edu/find/refworks.
