New Interface for RefWorks Staring May 25

On May 25th we will be moving from the current Refworks platform to Refworks 2.0. You can access Refworks 2.0 right now by logging in and clicking on "Refworks 2.0" at the top right. To change back prior to May 25th, click on Refworks Classic.

To help with this transition, the library will be offering a session on Thursday, June 2, from 2-3pm. Come enjoy cookies and tea and get a demo on the new Refworks platform. Please RSVP to Joanne  Helouvry at jhelouvry@loyola.edu / jhelouvry@ndm.edu or 410-617-6834.

The new platform has a clean design and has many features that will make it easier for you to organize your research. Some of these features include rollovers to allow you to view a reference without clicking on it, a new right hand navigation bar that allows you to quickly access the things you need, and RefShare, which will allow you to share folders with students and classmates. The familiar toolbars at the top of the page are still there and our search for full-text button is still with each reference.

RefWorks has created a multi-part tutorial for the new platform. Click here to access the tutorial - you have the option of watching screencasts or downloading PDFs.
