RefWorks Training

RefWorks is an online research management tool that allows researchers to create a personal database in which they can gather, manage and store all kinds of bibliographic information. Citation information for articles, books and many other types of sources can be automatically imported from most of McQuade Library’s subscription databases. You can also create citations and bibliographies within RefWorks using hundreds of different citation styles, including APA, MLA, Chicago, and Turabian.

McQuade Library will be offering workshops next week to teach users how to make the most of this product.

Workshop schedule:

Wednesday, February 20th at 9:30am

Thursday, February 21st at 3:30pm

The workshops will last approximately one hour, and will be held in the Alden classroom on the 3rd floor of McQuade Library. These workshops are open to all members of the Merrimack College community (students, faculty and staff). Please contact Bridget Rawding (Bridget.Rawding@merrimack.edu, or x4229) if you are planning to attend or would like more information.
