Using New RefWorks

Resources to help you use the New RefWorks reference management tool provided by the Amelia Galluci Cirio Library.

Creating Folders

Note:   *Any reference that is not placed in a folder will be automatically deleted after 30 days.

You can keep better track of the citations you save in RefWorks by organizing them into folders according to class name, research topic, or any other scheme you can think of!

There are two ways to create a folder, either from the drop down through My Folders or the Folders icon.

Creating a folder through My Folders

Open the My Folders menu on the left side of the screen, and select + Add a folder.

Ideally, you want a different folder for each research assignment you have, so it's a good idea to name your folder after your assignment or topic. Enter the name and hit save. (You can always change the name later, too.)

Now that you have created a folder, you will see it under My Folders with 3 dots next to it.  This is where you can create subfolders, rename or share your folder.

Creating a folder through the Folder icon

An additional way to create a folder when viewing a reference, is by using the folder icon.  From the All Documents or Last Imported menus, select a reference you want to assign a folder. Then, select the Folder icon from the toolbar at the top of the screen.

Once you have selected the Folder icon, you will have the option to either select an existing folder or create a new folder for that reference. Select +Create to create a new folder to assign that reference.
