One of the extra tools with RefWorks is the ability to manage your citations as you write your assignment. This is called Proquest for Word.
If you are on campus or in the halls, this is automatically loaded onto your machine and will appear in the Word ribbon on the last tab. You simply click log-in and your previously saved references will appear. Make sure you choose the correct referencing standard (e.g. Harvard or APA) before you start and when you are ready, simply click insert citation and choose one from the list as you go.
When you are finished, click on bibliography options and insert bibliography and this will appear at the end of your assignment. Always double check it to ensure all the references are correct.
If you are using your own machine, you'll need to go into RefWorks Tools to download the software and be aware if you have a Mac, you'll need to install Java first.
As well as working with Word, this software is also compatible with Google Docs.
Please contact the library if you have any questions.
