An alternative way of importing references from Business Source Premier (BSP)

Although Business Source Premier allows you to import references directly into RefWorks, occasionally people have reported problems doing this from off-campus. If you experience difficulties, there is another, slightly longer way you can get your references into RefWorks. This is split into two stages

Stage one: saving your references
  1. Access Business Source Premier as usual
  2. Click Add to the right of each of the articles you want to save
  3. Click Folder in the top left hand corner of the screen
  4. Click Save to Disk
  5. Click Bibliographic Manager
  6. Choose the option Citations in a format that can be uploaded to bibliographic management software
  7. Click the Save button. A new web page opens.
  8. Click File > Save As (or Save Page As)
  9. Enter a filename and where you would like to save the file as normal
  10. Under Save as Type make sure Text file is selected
Stage two: Importing your references into RefWorks
  1. Open up Refworks
  2. From Import Filter/Data Source, select EBSCOhost
  3. From Database, select Business Source Premier
  4. Click the Browse button and locate the file you have just saved
  5. Click Import

Searching external resources, like the British Library, through RefWorks

It is possible to search a number of external resources through the RefWorks search interface. Most of these other resources are library catalogues, and they include the catalogue of the British Library, as well as our own University of Warwick catalogue. Other resources include PubMed.

To search another resource within RefWorks, click on Search *then *Online Catalog or Database. Select the source you want to search from the drop–down menu, then type in your search.

RefWorks will open a new browser window containing the results of your search. You can then select which references you would like to add (import)to your RefWorks account.
