Faculty Workshop: Using RefWorks for Citation Management

The City Tech Library, in partnership with the Faculty Commons, is pleased to invite all faculty to attend a workshop on using RefWorks for citation management. With RefWorks it’s easy to import references from online databases, organize your references into folders by topic or project, and generate a bibliography formatted in a variety of citation styles. In this workshop we’ll cover the basics of using RefWorks from both on- and off-campus.
This workshop will be held on Wednesday, February 24, 1-2pm in the library classroom, A540. RSVP to Maura Smale at msmale@citytech.cuny.edu or 260-5748. For more information, visit the Faculty Workshops page on our website.
