Reducing Redundancies: Libraries to End RefWorks License

For the past several years, members of the Drexel community have had the option to chose between RefWorks, a site licensed by the Libraries, and EndNote, a site licensed by IRT. Following the University initiative to examine and reduce redundancies on campus, the Libraries will no longer provide a license to the RefWorks tool. Access to RefWorks will end on September 30, 2014.

Customizing Your Google Scholar Settings to Link to Fulltext at Drexel

A few simple steps can make all the difference in connecting search results to full text, exporting citations to RefWorks or EndNote and best of all - SAVING TIME!

It's great that GoogleScholar settings can be saved by a cookie in your browser without requiring that you sign into a personal Google/Gmail account.

Go to:  http://scholar.google.com

Look for the "gear" icon that says "Settings"

Exporting Citations from RefWorks to EndNote

This post is in response to inquiries from Education graduate students who use the web-based RefWorks citation management solution for harvesting journal citations, but would like to ultimately have their citations reside in the desktop-based EndNote software.  Presuming you are familiar with RefWorks, we will proceed from the point at which you have collectied citations in a specific RefWorks folder, and are prepared to export them to a text file on your desktop for later use with EndNote.

Using RefWorks to Produce a Custom Annotated Bibliography

Annotated bibliographies can be managed in a variety of ways. Based on a recent interaction I will share the steps outlined for an EdD student who wanted to try using RefWorks.

 

Other collaborative features in Refworks

RefShare

RefShare  is a social networking tool. It provides RefWorks users with a quick and easy way to share their research information, share folders with or without attachments, and add comments and provide feedback on shared references. This will assist you in enhancing your collaborative research with your team members.

Using RefShare, you can make a list of citations from your RefWorks account public, either on the Drexel Shared Folders list, or via a URL that you can email, or post on a webpage.

Using Refworks to build your collaborative bibliography for your group projects

While it is important for you to continue to work together on your group project,  a time will soon come when you will need to report your findings from your projects. You may be asked to present  as a team or report your results in a research paper.

Library workshops: Reference management tools that are out of cite

Has this ever happened to you?

You found a great source for a paper. You forgot to save it and couldn't find it again, OR you forgot to save the bibliographic information for the source (title, author, etc.), and you couldn't write its entry in your paper's bibliography, OR you saved all your source information, but you struggled to get the formatting correct for the in-text citation and reference section.
