One of the tools that we will use while getting our MLS is Refworks.  Refworks is “an online research management, writing and collaboration tool — is designed to help researchers easily gather, manage, store and share all types of information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies”.

Refworks is unfortunately not super intuitive the first time you use it.  Luckily, I am participating in this program with a wonderful cohort and they are all constantly sharing information and doing what they can to provide each other with support.  One of our members, Bruce, was kind enough to document what he learned about using Refworks and has agreed to let me post a tutorial he created on this blog for our entire cohort (and future cohorts) to use.  Please click here: refworks-101 to view the tutorial.  An additional tutorial created by Bruce can be accessed by clicking here:  refworks_102. Otherwise, these documents can be found under “My Documents” in the right tool bar.

Alternatively, you can check out the refworks guide provided by the St. John’s Library: http://libguides.stjohns.edu/RefWorks

Thanks again Bruce!
