Folders are an easy way to organize references. Name your folders whatever makes sense to you: course number, topic, purpose, methodology, etc. You may create folders at any time, and your references can be in multiple folders at the same time.
Create a folder in your RefWorks account:
Run a search in a VCU Libraries database. Follow the exporting instructions for the database to export selected references into your RefWorks account. Instructions for nearly all our databases are linked from the Exporting tabs on the left. NOTE: If you are asked to choose between legacy RefWorks and new RefWorks, choose legacy RefWorks.
The references you just exported are in the Last Imported folder. This is a temporary holding folder, so you need to assign your references to a permanent folder before you do another search and export.
If you allow your browser to display popups, Word will open and your draft References list will appear.
If you have blocked popups, a green Completed box will open in the lower right of your screen. Select the 'click here' link located next to the words download prompt. Click on or browse to the downloaded file. It will be named [your login name]-RefList.doc.
This is a DRAFT bibliography. You must proof it and correct any errors in capitalization, punctuation, or formatting. When you are finished, add the bibliogrraphy to your paper: copy and paste; OR merge the files; OR print it separately
