References can be added to Refworks in a number of ways:
Please note that when exporting, choose RefWorks.
Search the database and from the list of results you can usually export individual or multiple results. Sometimes this involves adding the references to a folder to allow you to export them to a reference manager software.
Most databases have some type of Save/ Mail/Export functionality to enable you to do this. If there is a RefWorks export option, this makes the process much easier.
Some external Library catalogues are set up to export references into RefWorks.
For example, the British Library main catalogue
Type in some keywords into the search box and click Search. Click the star symbol next to any results you wish to export and it will turn blue (The link is labelled 'Add to My Workspace').
When ready to export your references, go to My workspace (top right of the screen), select your references and click Push to RefWorks. Select the New version of RefWorks.
Click the + icon labelled Add a Reference (top left of the RefWorks menu) to create a new reference or to upload documents such as PDFs of articles from your computer.
