Do you have trouble organizing your research? Have you ever lost track of an article that you had hoped would be helpful? Do you find formatting your citations to be a nuisance? RefWorks might be the answer for you.
RefWorks is an online citation manager available to all Texas State University students. This resource allows users to easily import articles and other media from databases and the library’s collection into user-created folders and subfolders. Placing documents and links into folders allows user to have organized and quick access to previously conducted research. While similar to creating and using folders within databases themselves, using RefWorks and other citation managers allows you to include material from a number of different locations.
RefWorks is also capable of creating a bibliography or works cited with the push of a button. Simply choose the format you want to use and select the works you wish to use and the RefWorks software will develop your list. Also, RefWorks offers plug-ins to Word that make it possible for the program to create in-text citations automatically as you write. As always, be vigilant regarding the accuracy of generated citations.
