Managing Citations with EndNote and RefWorks: Oct. 12 class

Managing Citations with EndNote and RefWorks

Tuesday, Oct. 12 2010
450C Moffitt Library (bring your Cal ID to enter Moffitt)

  • EndNote automates the creation of bibliographies. Save hours of typing by simply selecting the publication or style by name and generating a perfectly formatted document. EndNote currently offers over 4500 styles. EndNote allows you to store PDFs and other files in your database. EndNote is available for a substantial student discount.
  • RefWorks is a web-based tool that allows users to create their own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases. Use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds. Web-based means you can access RefWorks from any computer with Internet access. Access to Refworks is provided by the UCB Library to UCB students, staff, and faculty.

In this class, we will cover the basics of using each: adding citations to your database, using EndNote and RefWorks with Microsoft Word to create reference lists and bibliographies, and more.

The collection includes dramatic performances; speeches; lectures and events; historic newsreels; and documentaries, including one of the strongest collections of works by independent film and video makers in the US.
