RefWorks Workshops - Store and Organize Your Citations

Hunter Library is hosting drop-in workshops to teach students and faculty how to use RefWorks.

What is RefWorks? It’s a resource that allows you to store and organize your research. You can select and easily download citations from most of the library’s databases. Book, article, and website citations can then be formatted in the needed style (MLA, APA, etc.), shared with other project members, or quickly turned into a bibliography or works cited!

At the workshop, you can
- Set up an account and start saving your research.
- Learn how to import citations from Academic Search Premier and other databases.
- Bring your works-cited lists and turn them into the appropriate format.

When: 1:00-3:00, and 5:00-6:00PM Wednesday October 24th; and 5:00-6:00PM Thursday, October 25th

Where: Hunter Library Room 186 (across from the Hunter Library Computer Lab)
Computers are available; feel free to bring your laptop!

For more information, contact the Reference Desk at 227-7465; email askalibrn@email.wcu.edu
