Organize your citations and learn to use RefWorks in two workshops

The University of Iowa Libraries will offer two introductory workshops on RefWorks. RefWorks is a web-based service that enables you to save bibliographic citations from the library catalog and other library databases. Both workshops will be held in 1015A LIB (1st floor, northwest corner of Main Library, located in the Digital Studio for Public Humanities).

Wednesday, Oct 12, 12:15-1:45 p.m.

Friday, Oct 14, 12:15-1:45 p.m.

In this workshop you will learn to:

* Export citations from a data service

* Create, edit, and delete citations in RefWorks

* Organize your citations and share them with colleagues at UIowa and beyond

* Use RefWorks to easily create and format bibliographies

Librarians will show you how to use RefWorks, and then give you the opportunity to practice with it at the end of the workshop. No registration is required, but seating is limited, so latecomers may be turned away.

Participants should have created personal accounts in RefWorks prior to the workshop. To do this, follow the “Connect to RefWorks” link on the UI Libraries RefWorks web page: http://www.lib.uiowa.edu/find/refworks.
