Exporting References to RefWorks

Exporting References to RefWorks


 

 

From Other Library Databases

Click on the database name below to view specific instructions for exporting references from that database to RefWorks.

For additional instructions not covered below, see RefWorks help page: Importing from Online Data Vendors. (If there are no instructions for your database below or in the RefWorks help page linked above, you may need to enter your references manually.)

General Information:

  • In most cases, pop ups must be allowed on your web browser in order to export to RefWorks.
  • When accessing our databases and RefWorks from off campus using your NetID, you will need to enter them from the Library's web site; you can find most of them on the Article & Database Searching page. You may get "security certificate" errors during the process of exporting because you are being directed to the RefWorks site through our proxy server. This is ok; just click through them to continue.
  • If you encounter problems when exporting using a NetID login, try installing the campus VPN software and then logging into it with your NetID first before going to our databases and RefWorks.
