  1. 1. + Capturing Citations from Websites using RefGrab-It. John Pell Assistant Professor Hunter College Libraries
  2. 2. + RefGrab-It? RefWorks provides a tool for capturing citation data from websites that can be found in the “Tools” drop-down menu.
  3. 3. + Setting up RefGrab-It: RefGrab-It can be quickly set up by right-clicking on the RefGrab-It Bookmarklet and selecting “Bookmark this link.” Note: At the time I created this tutorial, RefGrab-It was not functioning correctly in Internet Explorer.
  4. 4. + Setting up RefGrab-It:Saving the bookmarklet to the tool bar will keep it readily available.
  5. 5. + Using RefGrab-It: RefGrab-It can be used to capture records for your RefWorks database from websites such as PubMed. To get started, click the bookmark when there are records on screen that you wish to capture.
  6. 6. + Using RefGrab-It: A window will pop-up listing the available records that were displayed on the webpage when you clicked the bookmark. Note: you need to have javascript enabled for this to work.
  7. 7. + Using RefGrab-It: To import the records to RefWorks, check the box next to each record you wish to import and then click, “Import to RefWorks.”
  8. 8. + Using RefGrab-It: If you are still logged in to Ref- Works, your records will be imported; if not, you will be taken to the log-in screen. You can quickly view your new records by clicking the, “View Last Import Folder” button.
