RefWorks is web-based bibliographic management software. Does that make sense? I didn’t think so. So here’s what it really is: an online program that allows you to upload, save, and format article and book citations. Like EndNote (which you can get for free through Duke), RefWorks also formats your bibliography for you.
Right now, Duke has a trial subscription to RefWorks. Through June 30, 2007, any Duke user can use RefWorks for free.
To create an account, follow these steps:
- Go to www.refworks.com/refworks from any computer at Duke.
- Click on Sign Up for an Individual Account.
- Enter the appropriate information and click on Register.
You can use RefWorks off-campus: just enter Duke’s group code RWDukeUniv.
If you have any questions regarding the trial, or feedback on RefWorks, please contact me, Joan Petit.
