There are two methods to add reference(s) into your RefWorks database: manually or electronically via the use of library databases.
You can edit records that you have added to your RefWorks account at any time. Search for your record by selecting the relevant folder or conduct a search for the reference by selecting Search > Advanced to enter key identifying details and click in the [Search] button to commence search.
Once you have located your record, select the Edit link. Make your changes and select the [Save Reference] button to update the Reference.
Direct Exporting of references from a database into RefWorks is the quickest and easiest method to add records to your RefWorks folders. Not all databases offer a direct export option, so please refer to the UWS RefWorks support page to see which UWS databases have this feature and how to export records in the correct format.
You can search for references in Library Databases and 'import' these references into your RefWorks database, as this is much more efficient than typing them in manually. Importing requires records to be saved as text file first, so they can then be imported into RefWorks, provided that records are saved in the correct format and that you select the right import option from the RefWorks website. Please refer to the UWS RefWorks support page to see which UWS databases have this feature and how to import records in the correct format.
When importing references from Library databases or Library Catalogue, references are automatically imported into the 'Last Imported' folder. Ensure that you transfer the imported reference(s) to the relevant folder. The Last Imported folder will keep a 'copy' of the imported reference(s), so to minimise confusion delete the remainder of references from the 'Last imported Folder'.
All references that were stored in the 'Last Imported' will then be deleted
