RefWorks – Bibliographies Made Easy

Apr 17 2010

RefWorksThe library is very pleased to offer RefWorks to the NYIT community.

RefWorks allows students and faculty to create their own unique database of citations by importing references electronically, or entering them manually using a very simple template.  RefWorks generates bibliographies in all major styles (MLA, APA, etc), and provides links to full text articles available in NYIT’s growing digital library.

Why use RefWorks?

RefWorks can be used for your own personal scholarship.  It provides an ideal location to collect, store and retrieve citations corresponding with your academic research and personal interests. 

For faculty member, RefWorks can also be used to manage and provide information to your students.  For example, within RefWorks you can create folders based on classes, topics, or weekly readings.  This information can easily be plugged into Blackboard 9 – literally a three-click process!

The library will begin offering RefWorks training sessions, the first of which will be held on April 22, 2010, at the NYCOM I Auditorium.  Designed specifically for NYCOM & School of Health Professions faculty, staff & students, this session will cover everything from organizing references, to using RefMobile. See you there!
