Following some recent training sessions, a number of people have asked which databases support direct exports (where references can be downloaded automatically into Refworks) has arisen. Although RefWorks provide a list of supported services (see the Refworks Direct Export services page) , this only lists the platform/software (e.g. OVID, CSA), rather than providing the names of databases themselves.
Some people have commented that they don't always know the name of the software and so find it difficult when importing their references to RefWorks and feel it would be useful to have this information somewhere on the library's webpages.
There are two ways we could try to do this. Firstly, in the A-Z list of databases, the RefWorks logo could be displayed next to supported databases. The second way is to have a list (either split by the platform or subject-based) giving the databases supported.
If anyone has any views on which they would find most useful, please post your comments below.
