Classes and Training

Classroom and One-on-One Training by Request

Want to get some hands-on experience with RefWorks in the company of an experienced RefWorks user? Consider requesting a one-on-one training session. These sessions can cover any aspect of RefWorks use that is of interest to you -- from basic to advanced.

If you're forming a research group and want to share references through a shared RefWorks account, consider arranging a RefWorks demo or class for your group.

If you're planning to assign a research paper to your students, consider encouraging your students to use Refworks and then helping them make use of RefWorks by arranging for a RefWorks demonstration, either during or outside of your classs time.
