  1. 1. REFWORKS Presented and compiled by Jen Eidelman http://www.lib.uct.ac.za/ Email: jen.eidelman@uct.ac.za
  2. 2. Searching online information within RefWorks Did you know that you have access to many other online data sources right at your fingertips? And you can access those data sources without leaving RefWorks . Here we will learn how to conduct a search within RefWorks and use the UCT Libraries Catalogue (ALEPH) as an example .
  3. 3. Searching within RefWorks Click on Search   Select “Online Catalog or Database”   You can also access this section from the “tools” area  
  4. 4. Searching within RefWorks Click on the drop down box to see the list of all the data sources available to you. Choose University of Cape Town Libraries Conduct a search for a book called Life on earth by E. Wilson. Use the ‘Authors’ and ‘Title’ fields to type in your information. Click the search button once you have established your search criteria. A new window opens with all your search results
  5. 5. Searching within RefWorks These references are not in your RefWorks account - we are just viewing the search results from the UCT library catalog. The name of the online catalogue or database is always displayed in the upper right corner.
  6. 6. Searching within RefWorks Mark the reference you wish to import You can select a folder to import the references into (from “Import to folder”) or you can just click on the import button to place the references in the “last imported folder”.
  7. 7. Searching within RefWorks Remember we are still viewing the search results from the UCT Libraries catalogue. Close the window and go back to RefWorks.
  8. 8. Searching within RefWorks You can locate your newly imported references by clicking on the “view last imported folder” button or from the “view”, Folder drop-down.
