Learn New RefWorks!

RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic reference manager that can be accessed from any Mac or PC computer on or off campus. Over the last few months ProQuest has launched its new and improved RefWorks® reference management platform, simplifying and improving research and collaboration workflows. Refworks 3 has a more modern interface making it easier to import to your library, better PDF handling and is now compatible with Microsoft Word 2016 and Google Docs.

Classroom and One-on-One Training by Request

Want to get some hands-on experience with RefWorks in the company of an experienced RefWorks user? Consider attending one of our classes in August or September.  You can also request a one-on-one training session. These sessions can cover any aspect of RefWorks use that is of interest to you — from basic to advanced.

** Register for one of our upcoming sessions in the library.

If you’re forming a research group and want to share references through a shared RefWorks account, consider arranging a RefWorks demo or class for your group.

If you’re planning to assign a research paper to your students, consider encouraging your students to use Refworks and then helping them make use of RefWorks by arranging for a RefWorks demonstration, either during or outside of your class time.

Contact Rhonda Altonen (rhonda_altonen@nymc.edu) or call 914-594-4200 to make arrangements.
