      A tool used to capture website information

      Tools > RefGrab-It > Follow downloading instructions

      Once you have located a website that you would like to save as a reference, simply click on the “RefGrab-It” bookmark on your toolbar.
    • Folders!
      Organizing your Citations
    • Folders
      Actions:
      • Create
      • Delete *

      ** Deleting a folder will not delete the citations stored there. Instead, these citations are automatically moved to “References not in a folder.”

      • Author
      • Descriptor
      • Periodical

      Choose which citations you would like to share
      Share them by placing them into folders
      It’s just like sending someone a link to a website

      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

      Select which References to include (having them in folders comes in handy…)
