RefWorks: export instructions

 

Attention! When importing titles one can choose to export them to either the classic version of RefWorks or the new RefWorks version. As the new version is still in beta the UvA will, for the time being, remain using the classic RefWorks version. Therefore, choose the left box with the classic RefWorks logo and check the ‘don’t ask me this again’ box.

From CataloguePlus

  • Mark the desired titles to add them to your e-Shelf
  • Open the e-Shelf > select the items you want to export
  • On the right-hand side of the screen choose Push to RefWorks > Go

RefWorks will open and after signing in the sources will automatically be imported.

If you merely want to export one title then, in the search results, click Detail on the particular title. On the right-hand side the link Send to will appear where you then choose RefWorks as destination. This avoids having to first safe the title to your e-Shelf.
