Many of our databases and ejournals can export records into RefWorks. We've listed step-by-step instructions below.
Don't see your database listed? You may still be able to create records manually in RefWorks. See our instructions for more information on creating new records in RefWorks.
To export multiple records:
Click the Share button, below each entry. (The page will direct you to “Your List”. Navigate back to the search page to add more records.)
Once you’ve got the records you wish to export, under the options panel on the left side of the page, click the export section.
Select Refworks, and hit send.
If it gives you the option to select Legacy or Proquest Refworks, select Legacy.
To export a single record:
When viewing the full record, click the Cite or Share link below the video/music window to take you to “Your List”
Choose the menu option for Export List.
A new window will open. If it gives you the option to select Legacy or Proquest Refworks, select Legacy. Login to RefWorks, if you are not already logged in.
Your references will be imported.
To save to a text file select the Detailed Record option from the search results Page.

Use the "Global Edit" function to change fields on a large number of citations at one time.
Alternately,, use the Search Online Databases tool inside RefWorks to search the library catalog and import references directly from the catalog.
