endnote

This year we will be making the transition from Refworks to Endnote Online. For more information, see our new EndNote Basic page. If you have questions, contact Bill Badke or Duncan Dixon. If you have references in RefWorks, you will need to move them to EndNote. This PDF tutorial provides instruction.

 

What Does RefWorks Do?

With RefWorks you can:

Graduating soon? Alumni? It's now possible to maintain access to your RefWorks bibliographies after you graduate. You will need to obtain your RefWorks group code before you graduate. It's found by logging in at:

https://ezproxy.student.twu.ca/loggedin/pswds.htm . You will then log in at www.refworks.com using your group code and then your individual login. If you want to make sure that you have a backup of your references, download them in a format that can be imported by bibliographic software such as RefWorks or EndNote.

Troubleshooting

Blank screens

If you get a blank screen instead of having RefWorks pop up when you download citations in a database, the problem is likely that you have a pop-up blocker operating on your computer. To solve this problem, hold the CTRL key down while you click on Save to save citations to RefWorks.  This tells the popup blocker that a popup is being allowed.

Login problems

Login to RefWorks through the library homepage before attempting to export references from a database. If the login window (below) doesn't say Trinity Western University, you may need to use our Group Code to successfully log in. Note that you'll need to log in using your username and password to get the Group Code.
