How To...Export Citations to RefWorks

Exporting Citations to RefWorks

Most research databases offer the ability to export a citation for a specific article etc. directly into your Refworks or other citation manager. Since each database company designs their interfaces differently, this export tool also appears differently in different databases. This guide is designed to help you locate this tool in the majority of Holy Cross' research databases in addition to tools like Google Scholar. 

What if my database is not on this list? 

This could mean that your database is one of the rare exceptions that does not export to Refworks,  or, it could simply mean that it hasn't been added yet! Email and we'll be happy to help you with the specific database and/or to add instructions to this page. 

What if I have other questions about using Refworks? 

Good news-- there is a guide for that! 

How do I find the instructions for [___] database?
