As a student you will probably collect all kinds of interesting information to help you with your studies. Many of these will be for research projects in various classes. Some will be useful throughout your time as a student, while others may only be useful for a specific paper. Quick and effortless retrieval of key citations from your collection will allow you to concentrate on writing a better paper.

Bookmarking web sites is simple. You can save and categorize your favorite web sites with a simple button click. Saving the results of your hard work on research projects is often much more complicated. It doesn’t have to be.

Refworks makes collecting citations as simple as saving bookmarks. This citation management software gathers the essential information for proper citations and saves it to your collection. It allows you to tag and drop records into folders for later retrieval. This painless process will allow you to keep organized while you search, no need to take time later to get your selections in order.

Additional time saving features include keyword searches of your collection and citation sorting by title, author and publication date.

Refworks also gives you the option to save a full text PDF for each citation. You can highlight key phrases and make notes on the PDFs to help you remember important information about articles.

All of your information is in one place, organized and annotated. Losing information is a thing of the past.

Did we mention that Refworks is free for all students and faculty of D’Youville?

Here is a short tutorial to get you started with organizing your Refworks citations. It is included in our YouTube playlist of Refworks tutorials.
