If you’ve been using RefWorks for awhile, you know how helpful it can be for managing your resources, creating in-text citations, and compiling that ever-so-pesky bibliography.  The people at RefWorks hope to make the process even easier now with the introduction of RefWorks 2.0.  The new version features a more “intuitive user interface” and makes use of “the latest web technologies and contemporary design elements” (http://www.refworks-cos.com/RefWorks2.0/).  For you, this should mean a better, more efficient way means of managing your resources.

Click "RefWorks Login" from the Quick Tools menu on the Library's website to access RefWorks.

If you login to RefWorks between now and the end of the semester, you’ll still see what is now referred to as “RefWorks Classic”.  However, you can choose to use RefWorks 2.0 and get familiar with it before it becomes the default option at the end of the semester (May).  At the top of the screen you’ll see a link labeled “RefWorks 2.0”. Click it, and you’ll immediately be transported to the new RefWorks.

If you haven’t used RefWorks before, now is a great time to get started. Creating an individual account is free and easy.  If you’re prompted for a “Group Code” call the Reference Desk at 410-704-2462 to get this code.

Here are a few helpful resources to get you started with RefWorks 2.0:
