Using the New RefWorks

Librarian Evans Whitaker will be offering a new class this month:

The New RefWorks: Word 2016, Google Docs & More

Friday, November 18, 12 – 1 pm
Parnassus Library, Room CL231

Reference managers like RefWorks, do three things, they store information about articles, organize that information, and then add citation and reference information to documents you create. The new version of RefWorks is a major improvement over the old one on all fronts.

Modernized interface, easy import to your library, better PDF handling and now compatible with Microsoft Word 2016 and Google Docs, the new blue-themed RefWorks is available for your use. The red-themed “legacy” RefWorks will be phased out in another year. Note: The new RefWorks only works with Word and GoogleDocs. The folks at RefWorks suggests you delay upgrading until you have completed any current projects.

The process of moving from the old to the new version is surprisingly easy as I recently discovered. The whole process took about 10 minutes.
