Special RefWorks Workshops on May 4, 2007

There will be two special hands-on RefWorks training sessions offered on Friday, May 4, 2007 at the Scholarly Communication Center of Alexander Library. RefWorks is a web-based bibliography tool and database manager that is free to the Rutgers community.

RefWorks: Tools for Collaborative Research 10:00-12:00
RefShare is a new tool in RefWorks that provides users with a quick and easy method of sharing their research with other Rutgers users and students, and globally with any researcher who has Internet access. This workshop will explore how to make folders sharable, how to transfer research information between RefWorks databases, how to access and view the shared databases via a customizable central web page (such as posting class reading lists), and how to grant access to shared bibliographies by posting a URL, which then can be e-mailed.

RefWorks: Special Topics 1:00-3:00
This workshop will address specific topics in RefWorks for users in the Rutgers community. New features (such as RefGrab-It and the ability to hold attachments) will be discussed and demonstrated. RefGrab has the ability to insert citations from references found in websites. This session is intended to be a hands-on session to address questions from people already using RefWorks.

In addition, The Center for Teaching Advancement and Research Assessment (CTAAR) now offers monthly hands-on Basic RefWorks workshops. Please refer to the CTAAR Calendar of Workshops to register.

Further information about RefWorks, including; setting up an account, on and off-campus connection, bibliographic stylesheets, and using electronic resources, can be found at the RU Libraries RefWorks Information Page. An extremely useful publication for new users is the RefWorks Quick Start Guide.

Please contact Marcie Anszperger at (732) 932-7466 or mja@brokenmail.rutgers.edu please replace "brokenmail" with ctaar.rutgers.edu if you have any questions.
