Managing your Bibliographies and Citations with RefWorks

RefWorks is an online tool for importing your citations from literature database searches, organizing them into convenient folders, and then automating the creation of bibliographies and lists of references in the format and Microsoft Word document of your choice. Numerous formats (ACS, CBE, AIP, APA, Chicago, etc.) are provided, and several databases have direct Refworks export functionality built-in. The downloadable Write-N-Cite utility allows users to add citations from their RefWorks database to a manuscript with one click. Free access to RefWorks is available to all UofM-affiliated users.

There are several online RefWorks video tutorials describing how to use this resource. UofM Libraries also provides hands-on training workshops (both basic and advanced) each semester.

PubMed Bookmarklet

A bookmarklet is a short javascript program that can be added to your browser bookmarks or favorites just like a bookmarked web page. The PubMed bookmarklet allows you to search the PubMed/Medline database for articles without having to navigate to its website. Articles in the search results will have the FindIt link so that you can locate the full text. You can use boolean operators and search field tags in the bookmarklet search field in the same way as with the website's search interface.

To obtain the url for the bookmarklet, just right-click on its link above and copy it.
