Organizing References

It is very important to keep your RefWorks library organized.  

Remember: Move all new references to appropriate folders immediately after importing them.  

RefWorks: Creating an Account

All members of McMaster's Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) with an e-mail can register for free access to RefWorks reference management software.

Adding References

Direct Export

Many of our article databases have a direct export function that allows you to transfer multiple search results directly to your RefWorks library.

Import From File (PubMed)

Manual Entry

For books, journals, and other non-electronic resources.


Install the RefGrab-It extension/add-on for your internet browser to directly capture citation information from webpages, newspaper articles, and more.
