Guides to using RefWorks

Click on the links in the table below to connect to more detailed information. The first link is to a comprehensive guide and tutorial produced by RefWorks. The lower four examples are from the University of Ulster Library. They contains screen shots and worked examples for folders and specific databases. Follow them in sequence to get a complete overview of using the RefWorks and Write-N-Cite software to download  references, input citations in a word processed document  and create a bibliography. These handouts are used by University of Ulster Library staff during regularly organised tutorial sessions which are organised on each campus. Look for announcements on the library homepage and follow the link that will be provided to book a training session. Particularly if you have a long piece of writing with many references it is worthwhile becoming familiar with using this citation management software before you start your literature review.
