Although it’s still relatively early in the semester, we’re already seeing students in the reference office looking for books and articles on various topics. We know all this searching will ultimately result in research papers, so this is the perfect time to sign up for one of the RefWorks workshops offered on September 21 and September 22. Attend one of these 90-minute sessions, and learn how to trim hours off of your time spent researching and writing. Registration is required—just click on one of the dates to sign up!
RefWorks is an online citation manager that helps you keep track of citations to books, articles, and other documents you gather during research. It is free to all JHU users, web-based, and requires no special download of software. Using RefWorks, you can also create properly formatted bibliographies and import citations from research databases and the JHU Libraries Catalog.
Workshops will cover accessing your account, getting citations into RefWorks, creating bibliographies with the click of a button, sharing reading lists in RefWorks, and more. RefWorks exports bibliographies in over 700 citation styles, saving time for those of you who may be writing for class or publication.
