RefWorks: In-Depth Help: Exporting & Importing References

If you want to learn how to use RefWorks on your own, this guide has all the info you need.

Exporting to RefWorks Video

One link for several very short instructional videos that show you how to export citation information to RefWorks from EBSCOhost databases, JSTOR, CSA databases, Project Muse, Google Scholar and Books, UTA Library Catalog, LexisNexis Academic, and WorldCat First Search.

Exporting from the Libraries' New Catalog, Summon

The export function from the Libraries' new catalog interface, Summon, is not intuitive at all, and the company that makes Summon is working on this problem. However, in the meantime, you can take a look at this blog post from the Libraries at University Campus Suffolk for step-by-step instructions on how to get your citation information out of Summon and into RefWorks.

Exporting References from a Shared Folder

You can export references from a Shared Folder or Shared RefWorks account into your own RefWorks account. This is especially useful for group projects in which all group members have done research and would like to compile their references into a single RefWorks account.

  1. Click on the URL for the Shared Folder
  2. Log into your RefWorks.
  3. Once in RefShare, select the individual references you would like to export or select "All in List."
  4. The Exported folder will automatically imported into your RefWorks.
