How Do I Put References into RefWorks?

Most of our electronic products - databases, e-journals, e-books - will connect to RefWorks fairly easily. The tabs in this guide titled 'Exporting Instructions: A-B', 'Exporting Instructions: C-E', etc., have the links to the instructions for exporting from specific databases into RefWorks. Before trying to move references into RefWorks, look at the lists to find the instructions for the resource you are using. Individual journal titles are not listed, but most journals will connect to RefWorks - look for a 'save citation' or 'export to bibliographic manager' or similar link.
