This guide will provide you with a more in-depth look at the New RefWorks bibliographic management tool.

Creating New Folders

Once you have collected your references from Legacy RefWorks, while researching a database, or by entering a reference manually the next step is to organize them. The way you can organize your references is by creating folders and placing those references within. To begin the process of creating a folder, go to the side icons and select My Folders. Within select (+) Add a Folder

Select Add a folder underneath my folders

Once you select Add a Folder you will be asked to assign a name to the folder. When finished select Save. Then, you will be redirected to the inside of the new folder with zero citations. 

After you create the folder, you will want to add citations in order to populate it. Either go to All Documents or Last Imported to select the citations you want to add to your folder. Make sure that the items you want to move are selected.

Then, go to the folder icon across the top and scroll down to find the created folder. Once the folder has been selected, click Apply.

Select Add to folder from the top

In order to double-check that references have been added to the correct folder, find your needed folder from the My folders option on the left. Once the needed folder has been selected, Text mining for this example, the folder will open with the needed references within.
