RefWorks My List RefWorks My List Presentation Transcript

  • RefWorks How to use My List ‘ My List’ is a temporary folder that you can use for several purposes.
  • RefWorks - My List One reason could be that if you select (check) references from a page and then move to the next page, the selections on the first page are not saved. Using ‘My List’ allows you to gather references from multiple pages and put them in one place for printing, exporting or generating a reference list….. Why would you use ‘My List’?
  • RefWorks - My List Or, you might be viewing a folder that has a lot of references (more than what are displaying on a single page), but you only want to print a few of the references and they are on different pages . You can put them in ‘My List’ and then print them out.
  • RefWorks - My List Or, perhaps you have some references that you want to export to give to a colleague and the references are in multiple folders ….instead of exporting each folder separately, you can place them in ‘My List’ for exporting.
  • RefWorks - My List You add references to ‘My List’ from any view or search results. There is always an ‘ Add to My List ’ button to the left of the folder drop-down.
  • RefWorks - My List Select the references you want to add to ‘My List’ by checking the box next to the reference, then click ‘Add to My List’. RefWorks tells you that the references were successfully added to ‘My List’.
  • RefWorks - My List Now let’s choose some references from a specific folder. From the ‘View‘ area choose ‘Folder’ and then choose the folder you want to open.
  • RefWorks - My List Check the references you want to add to ‘My List. Click ‘Add to My List’. RefWorks tells you that the references were successfully added to ‘My List’.
  • RefWorks - My List Now we want to include all references by the author Christer Larsson. Go to ‘Search’ and then ‘Lookup by Author’.
  • RefWorks - My List Click on the name of the author from the list
  • RefWorks - My List Check the references you want to add to ‘My List. Click ‘Add to My List’. RefWorks tells you that the references were successfully added to ‘My List’. A list of references by that author will be displayed on the page.
  • RefWorks - My List Another way of choosing all the references on a page is to choose the ‘All in List’ option from the ‘References to Use’ area.
  • RefWorks - My List To see all the references you have placed into the ‘My List’ folder, go to ‘View’ and then ‘My List’.
  • RefWorks - My List Remember, ‘My List’ is a temporary folder . Any references added here will still remain in their original location and once you log out of your RefWorks session, your ‘My List’ will be empty.
  • RefWorks - My List When you are in the ‘My List’ view, you can perform a few actions: You can remove references You can add references to a folder You can globally edit the references You can delete the references You can use the print function You can sort the references
  • RefWorks - My List There are also other areas in RefWorks where you can use the references in My List to perform a function. There’s a ‘My List’ option in the Bibliography area. My List is an option for formatting a bibliography from a list of references.
  • RefWorks - My List There is also a ‘My List’ option in the ‘Export’ area. Go to ‘References’ and then ‘Export’.
