There are several methods for getting citations into your RefWorks account. The method used depends on where you find the citation. Although RefWorks works seamlessly with many databases, websites and other search tools, others require a different strategy. A list of databases the Library subscribes to and how they work with RefWorks is included on the Database Specific Instructions page.
Many databases have the option to directly send citations to RefWorks. Mark the records you want to export and look for an option to "Export to RefWorks." For instructions for a specific datase look on the Database specific Instructions Tab.
Import Text File
When a database does not have a direct export option you can create a text file of citations that you can then import into RefWorks. In the database you are using, mark the records you want to export and look for a link to export/save citations as a text file. Once you have created a file with your selected citations you will then need to log into your RefWorks account and import them using a RefWorks Import filter.
