Reference Management: RefWorks and Mendeley

If you missed last term’s sessions on RefWorks and Mendeley, come along to our workshops next week:


RefWorks for Humanities, Wed 28 May 9.15 – 12.15

RefWorks is a well-established online tool which allows you to manage your citations/references, insert them into your work as footnotes or intext citations, automatically generate bibliographies and easily switch between citation styles.

This session will introduce the main features of RefWorks including:

  • adding references to RefWorks from a range of databases and online resources
  • inserting references into Word documents
  • formatting (and reformatting) references using citation styles
  • creating bibliographies

…and plenty of hands-on practice!

There is a Humanities bias to the session in the examples used in the demonstration, but it is open to all postgraduates, researchers,  academics and undergraduates wishing to use reference management software.

Mendeley for Reference Management, Tue 27 May 9.15 – 12.15

Mendeley is growing in popularity as a relatively new reference management tool, able to do all the things of a traditional reference management package (such as building up a library of references and inserting references into word processed documents), but with the addition of many social and collaborative features for researchers.

If you are looking for an alternative to RefWorks or Endnote or are new to reference management, why not come along to WISER: Mendeley for Reference Management (Tue 18 Feb 9.15-12.15) to find out more and try it out.  This session will cover:

  • Creating a Mendeley account and installing Mendeley Desktop
  • Adding, editing and organising references
  • Creating bibliographies
  • Managing PDF documents with Mendeley
  • Using the Mendeley ‘Papers’ database
  • Collaboration and social networking with Mendeley
