Fall RefWorks Training
Many of you have inquired about RefWorks workshops...
Here they are!
(Please pass the word to your students, too!)
What is RefWorks?
RefWorks, a Web-based service, allows faculty members and students to create customized databases using online resources and automatically format the content and bibliography of their papers. It also provides quick search and advanced search functions. Read more about it and give it a spin:
RefWorks is provided to campus by the Library and CITES and is an alternative to EndNote, etc. One advantage to using it in the lab setting is that multiple people in a lab can access the same account, sharing the same compilation of citations, accessing them from the web as needed when writing a paper.
These classes may be taken by anyone affiliated with UIUC -- students, faculty, staff. The classes are taught by Joe Straw, Library Central Reference Services. Please contact him if you have questions / concerns < firstname.lastname@example.org >
