Why attend this workshop?

Often managing large numbers of references can be time consuming and at times, overwhelming.  RefWorks allows students, with some knowledge of referencing, to manage these by importing from databases such as Proquest and Summon, as well as creating their own from websites and other sources.  RefWorks also allows for users to directly import journal articles and can be used as an effective resource bank to support research.
