Lipscomb Library Announces New RefWorks 3.0

We have a powerful new version of RefWorks!

This update to RefWorks streamlines collecting, managing, and organizing research papers and documents. You can read annotate, organize, and cite your research as well as collaborate with friends and colleagues by sharing collections.

RefWorks’ drag and drop capability along with our smart document recognition makes it easy and fast to upload documents and bibliographic metadata into your library and the Save to RefWorks feature allows you to capture research from websites with the click of a button.

If you’ve never used RefWorks, Lipscomb Library recommends that you choose New RefWorks 3.0 rather than learning Legacy RefWorks.
