RefWorks Trial

Thanks to Lori Northrup for providing this information.

On September 2, the library will host a WebEx demonstration of RefWorks software. While we have no current funding for purchasing this product, we thought that in the interest of keeping you abreast of developments in bibliographic management software and planning for the future, we would go ahead with a demo and trial this fall.

We know that some of you are already using Zotero, bibliographic management software from Mozilla, which is freely available on the web. We are particularly interested in hearing your opinions about RefWorks’ features in light of your Zotero experiences.

This is the kind of product that could benefit the entire campus, and while we would very much like to be able to acquire it, we know that there may other types of resources that are also of interest to you. Plagiarism detection software comes to mind. We invite you to share your opinions in the interest of helping to establish funding priorities in the future.

RefWorks Demonstration:

We look forward to seeing you there (or hearing about your experiences with these products by email if you can’t make it).
