August 2011—September 2011—RefWorks 2.0 is here! All users will now encounter the new interface as the default, although after logging in, users may select the "RefWorks Classic" interface through December 31, 2011.
RefWorks 2.0 features improved navigation, the ability to share a folder or references or a whole database, RefGrab-It to capture bibliographic information from websites, and RefMobile to access your database from wherever you are. The Write-N-Cite feature, which allows you to quickly create in-text citation and bibliographies while writing papers, is currently being updated, but the "Classic" version is fully compatible with 2.0. An online preview of 2.0 is available to anyone, with or without an account.
RefWorks will also be adding more new features soon, such as the ability to create subfolders and keyboard navigation of interface items.
For more information about RefWorks, including FAQs and video tutorials, visit the Libraries' RefWorks research guide.
Library trainers are offering fall RefWorks workshops to help both new and returning users. The 1-hour session will help you set up an account; learn to export and manage citations; and produce a bibliography using one of more than hundreds of citation output styles, including APA, MLA, Chicago, and Turabian.
