RefWorks Trial on Now

UNB Libraries is providing a free trial of the RefWorks bibliography manager until the end of December. RefWorks is a web-based version of bibliographic software packages such as Reference Manager, ProCite, and Endnote.

The following is from the company’s home page: “With RefWorks users can create their own personal database by importing references from online databases. They can use these references in writing their papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds. As a web-based product, RefWorks is available to users across various platforms including Windows, Mac, Unix, etc.”

To try RefWorks, go to //www.refworks.com and choose User Login from the menu bar at the top. At the next screen, click “Sign up for an individual account”. Fill out the form, supplying a login name and password of your choice. This can be done from any computer on campus. You will receive an email message from Refworks, including your account information and the code you need to use for off-campus access.

We welcome your comments about RefWorks. Please send email to fgiberso@unb.ca.
