The New ProQuest Refworks

What is RefWorks?

Here are four reasons you might consider using this time saving tool: 

  • RefWorks citation manager stores any type of cited references in one convenient spot and individual folders can be created for various projects.
  • Each citation generally includes hyperlinks back to the article's full text.
  • Nearly every database and library catalog offers a one click export option, so citation information will not need to be copied down. Just Look for the word "EXPORT" in the databases or catalog, then choose: "Export to RefWorks".
  • Best of all, because RefWorks understands most common citation styles, it formats your bibliography for you as a word document.

    Using RefGrab-it

    works with your browser to capture bibliographic information from web pages giving you the option to import that data into your RefWorks account.

    Here's how:

    • After you install RefGrab-It as a bookmarklet in your browser when you click on the RefGrab-it Link or Icon, it will look for information on the web page. 
    • If an ISBN number, PubMed ID, DOI  or COinS (ContextObjects in Spans -- special coding embedded in the web page that RefWorks will read) are on the web page, RefGrab-It will automatically take that information search various web resources (behind the scenes) to get supplemental information that may be of interest to you that you can also import.
    • RefWorks may even locate RSS feeds related to that web page that you can invoke and import information from.

    For more information, Log into RefWorks, go to the Tools tabs and select RefGrab-It or check out the RefGrab-It help page...
