  • Welcome to this introduction to RefWorks class. My name is Tom Keays. I’m a science librarian here at SU (Syracuse University) and I can be found most days at the SciTech Library over in Carnegie. Over the next hour or so, I’m going to try to give you a good understanding of what the program is designed to do and how you can use it to improve your research productivity.
