Importing/Exporting References

If you are OFF-CAMPUS, you should  have access and turn on your campus Web VPN software first. Without the VPN, you will need to do manual exports and follow the additional instructions in the Connect Box.

Links to instructions on how to transfer records from specific library databases into your RefWorks account are provided below.

Most databases have TWO sets of instructions for how to move database records into RefWorks: 

  1. Direct Export
    • Use this method if available.
    • Quickest & easiest
  2. Manual Export
    • Requires a few more steps, usually involves saving the records from the database as a .txt document, then logging into RefWorks and importing the records from the saved document.
