Importing Citations from the Catalog

Here are the step-by-step instructions to use when you wish to capture a print book's citation information from the Alumni Library Catalog.


What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a product that allows you to create, search and maintain your own personal citations database.

These citations can then be easily inserted in papers or publications, and are automatically added to bibliographies in multiple citation styles.

RefWorks is available free to WIT faculty, students, staff, and alumni through the WIT Library subscription.

The following databases or database providers allow exporting: EBSCO, JSTOR, Lexis-Nexis, Proquest, the FLO Catalog, and WorldCat.

To add citations view the tutorial or the PDF below.

Annotated Bibliography

You can use RefWorks to create an annotated bibliography once you set up an account.

You can import citations from your library database searches and RefWorks will do the formatting for you. Then you can focus on the research and analysis rather than worrying about the format.

To create an annotated bibliography using RefWorks:

  1. Export citations from library databases into RefWorks.
  2. Add your notes to the abstract field for each record in RefWorks.
  3. Use an Annotated with Abstracts style from the RefWorks Styles manager.
  4. Export the annotated bibliography to Word.
