What is RefWorks and why would I want to use it?

RefWorks is a web-based software application that helps you manage citations. It helps you keep track of the sources you are using for your research and your own notes about the sources. It is web-based (no special software installation, downloads, or plug-ins required). It will also create bibliographies for you in the format you specify (APA, IEEE, etc.).

See: Refworks Overview for more information

How do I set up RSS feeds in Refworks?

After you logon to your Refworks account, click on RSS Feed under 'Search' Tab. Enter the 'RSS Feed URL' in the search box and click on 'Add RSS Feed' button.

More tips: In your Refworks account, bring your cursor to 'Help' tab. Select 'Tutorials' and then click on 'Refworks Advanced'. Go to 'Importing from RSS feeds' section of this virtual tutorial.

See: Using RSS to increase user awareness of e-resources in academic libraries for more information on RSS feeds and how you can keep up-to-date with new research articles from electronic databases such as Ei compendex and INSPEC.
