EndNote X4 / RefWorks Drop-In Class TOMORROW April 1

Time: 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

Location: Bioscience Library Seminar Room, 2103 VLSB

No sign-up is needed

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 both EndNote and RefWorks. We’ll go over how to add citations to your database, organize your citations, format your bibliography, and how to use EndNote and RefWorks with Microsoft Word to create reference lists and bibliographies. This class will be useful for you who are EndNote/RefWorks novices, for you who want a little tune-up, for those of you struggling a bit with the software, and will be useful for you who are trying to decide which one to use (if either!)

The Seminar Room is equipped with 12 iMacs. If you already have EndNote installed on your laptop, you can work on your own computer. You can also download a 30-day free EndNote trial from endote.com.
