RefWorks Update

We have received notice from RefWorks that the KU Library Catalog filter has been completed. This will allow you and your students to import records from the library catalog into RefWorks. You can also search the library catalog directly in RefWorks, directions are below:

Adding references from the Library Catalog

To download records from the Rohrbach Library Catalog, follow these instructions:

  • Search the Library Catalog and mark the records of interest (remember to click on ‘Retain Selected Records’ if you change screens)
  • Go to ‘Print/Save/Email Options‘ at the bottom of the screen. Select Format: Full Record, and click on ‘Print or Save
  • Save the results to your Desktop as a .txt file.
  • Login to your RefWorks account.
  • Place your cursor over References and click on Import.
  • For Import Filter/Data Source select Endeavor Voyager from the drop-down menu.
  • For Database select Kutztown University.
  • Select Import Data from the following Text File.
  • Click on Browse and select the saved .txt file.
  • Click on Import below the text box.
  • Your citation(s) will automatically be imported into the Last Imported Folder.
  • You may view the records or move them to the folder of your choice.
  • Note: If you copied the Library Catalog search results instead of saving to a file, choose Import Data from the following Text. Click in the text box, click on Edit in the browser menu, then Paste. Click on Import.

Alternately you can search the Library Catalog directly in RefWorks

  • Login to your RefWorks account.
  • Under the Tools menu, choose Search Online Catalog or Database.
  • From the drop-down menu, choose Kutztown University.
  • Enter your search terms into the search boxes, and click Search; results display in a new window.
  • Choose the results you want and save them to a folder.
  • To search again, simply close the results window, and enter new search terms in the search boxes.

As always I am happy to schedule a refworks training session for you, your dept, or your classes.
