RefWorks: exporting titles

Take note! When importing references you can choose between exporting to the classic version of RefWorks and the new RefWorks version. Because the new version is still in beta, the UvA will provisionally use the classic RefWorks version. Therefore, choose the left tile with the classic logo and tick off the box ‘do not ask me this again’

From CataloguePlus 

  • check the relevant titles to add them to your E-shelf
  • open the E-shelf > select the titles you wish to export
  • in the right margin select Push to RefWorks > Go

RefWorks then opens. When you are logged in, the titles are automatically exported.

If you wish to export a single title, click Details at the relevant title. Then click the link Send to on the right and select RefWorks. This way you avoid having to place it on the e-Shelf first.
