    Share them by placing them into folders
    It’s just like sending someone a link to a website
  • Write n’ Cite
    RefWorks’ in-text citation tool
  • What is Write n’ Cite?
    • Write n’ Cite is an additional feature of RefWorks.
    • It allows you to run a mini-version (author, title, year only) of RefWorks in your Word document.
    • Write n’ Cite enables you to insert citations with a click of the mouse.
    • It also formulates a bibliography to place directly in your paper.
  • Creating a Bibliography
  • Creating a Bibliography
    Select your “Output Style” (citation style; over 500 to choose from!)
    Select “Format a Bibliography from a List of References”
    Choose your file type to create
    Select which References to include (having them in folders comes in handy…)
