January 16– RefWorks Basics
is a web-based bibliographic management software designed to help you manage citation information. This class covers opening a RefWorks account, creating folders for you research topics, searching the online catalog and databases, downloading the citations into RefWorks, creating a bibliography in APA automatically, accessing the articles full text from home by clicking on the button in RefWorks, setting up defaults such as APA as the citation style and University of Virginia as the online catalog, and identifying resources you can access to help you learn RefWorks. We have also included here the sample WORD document that lists TERMS you can paste into the RefWorks NOTES field to help guide you reading of research articles and facilitate note taking. To help you set up an account, you might want to view this 2 minute tutorial, "How to Register for a RefWorks account. "
