RefWorks Training Workshops at the Graduate Center

March 12th, 2010 by Sarah Laleman Ward

Next week, the CUNY Graduate Center is hosting a series of training workshops on RefWorks, which is…

“an online research management, writing and collaboration tool — is designed to help researchers easily gather, manage, store and share all types of information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies.”

RefWorks is a tool that is available to all Hunter students, faculty and staff, and can help you organize citations for your various research projects, as well as quickly format bibliographies and works cited pages in a variety of citation styles. Visit here for more information.

The workshops are open to all CUNY librarians, staff, faculty, and interested students-
