RefWorks Classes – Jan/Feb

The UCSD Libraries will offer hands-on workshops on using RefWorks during weeks 3, 5 & 6 of the quarter. Class size is limited, so please register at

RefWorks is web-based software you can use to organize your references and instantly format them for bibliographies and research papers. It’s also free to UCSD students. This quarter, we’re offering 2 workshops:

RefWorks I: The Basics of RefWorks
(Jan 22, 2-2:50pm — Feb 5, 10-10:50am — Feb 13, 2-2:50pm)

  • Navigating the RefWorks’ interface and help resources

  • Creating an account for your RefWorks “library”
  • Importing references from databases to build your “library”
  • Managing your references and turning them into a bibliography

RefWorks II: Customizing Your RefWorks Library
(Jan 24, 2-2:50pm — Feb 7, 10-10:50am — Feb 15, 2-2:50pm)
Note: Taking RefWorks I or having equivalent experience with RefWorks is needed for this class.

  • More about managing references in your “library”

  • Editing output styles
  • Using Write-N-Cite to insert and format references in your paper

These workshops are not discipline-specific, and we’ll provide in-class exercises for science/engineering, humanities/social sciences, and biomedical sciences.

If you have any questions, or would like to arrange for a RefWorks consultation outside these times, contact the S&E RefWorks Coordinator.
