RefWorks is a citation management resource designed to help manage references and format bibliographies. RefWorks is linked to the IMI Library journal databases. This allows users to export citations directly without interrupting their research. A bit of work to learn to use RefWorks at the beginning of a research project is far better than hours of work manually constructing a bibliography at the end!
To get started with RefWorks each user must create an account. The RefWorks account you create will be automatically linked to your IMI Athens account (your Athens username should begin 'imi' followed by a series of letters and numbers).
Now you will be able to export citations from our journal article databases to your RefWorks account with a single click.
Click here for a series of brief RefWorks video tutorials. They are also located under the 'Help' section within RefWorks as well as being posted here on YouTube. If you are having difficulty the Library staff can show you how to use RefWorks to manage your citations and draft your bibliography.
Harvard Style Referencing
IMI course participants are expected to use Harvard-style referencing in their assignments. While not complicated, it does take time to become accustomed to the style. For example, Harvard-style uses in-text citations rather than footnotes. The IMI Library has multilple copies of books which explain the style in detail. Also available is a brief guide to help participants begin to familiarise themselves with Harvard-style.
The guide is available here: Harvard-Style Guide 2013
