We will also help you with the software one-on-one:  just request a research consultation.

Features

RefWorks, Endnote Web, and some of the free software sites have the following basic, common features:

  • Web-based (that is, once you’ve set up an individual account, you can use the service from any internet connection)
  • Online storage space for your citations
  • Importing of citations from major database vendors such as ProQuest or Ebsco either directly or indirectly (more information)
  • Importing of citations from MARQCAT, our online catalog
  • Direct importing of citations from MARQCATplus, our online discovery catalog.
  • Ability to cite references in papers and to create citations and bibliographies in various style formats (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.)

Definitions

  • Direct importing/exporting: means that while you’re in a database such as ProQuest, you can send selected records/references directly to your citation management account (RefWorks or Endnote Web).
  • Indirect importing/exporting: means that when you’re in a database such as the Cambridge Companions, you must first save selected records into a file (usually a text, or .txt, file), and then from within the citation management system, you import that file.
  • Importing vs. exporting: both words describe the basic action of getting citations from a database into the citation software without needing to re-key them.  The two names just reflect your starting point!  For example:
  1. Starting from inside a database, where it's usually called 'exporting'
  2. Starting from inside the citation management software, where it's called 'importing'
