  3. Under Result Format, select Ovid.
  4. Click on Save.
  5. On the next screen, select Windows Style Linefeeds and click Continue.
  6. Click Save to disk.
  7. Give the file a name and choose where you wish to save it, as normal.
Stage Two: Importing the references into RefWorks
  1. Log into your RefWorks account.
  2. Click on the References menu and select Import.
  3. On the next screen, under Import Filter/Data Source, select University of Warwick.
  4. Under Database, select Medline [OVID].

Importing single references from the Library Catalogue

If you just want to import a single item from the the Library Catalogue into your RefWorks account, there’s now an easier way to do it

Note: this process only works for a single reference. If you want to import lots of references from the Library Catalogue, you should view the blog entry called Importing records from the Library Catalogue, posted on 24 May 2007.

  1. Search the Library Catalogue as usual.
  2. Click on the title of the book you are interested in to display the full information.
  3. Click on the blue External resources button. You will find this just above the search box in the middle of the screen.
  4. A new window appears. In the section labelled Recommended Web Resources, click on the link to RefWorks.
  5. When prompted, log in to your RefWorks account as normal. The details of the book you were viewing will be displayed. If you wish to add any additional notes you can do so at this stage. If you do make any changes, remember to click the Save button to update the reference.
  6. To return to the Library Catalogue, click on the blue Home button in the top right hand corner of the screen.

Note: You may find that the Classmark details (stored in the Notes field) don’t display properly. This is being looked into and will be fixed as soon as possible.

Importing from databases just got easier!

One of the difficulties with RefWorks in the past has been when you need to use an Import Filter, as it’s often tricky to know which is the right one to use. We’ve now made a few changes which should make this a bit easier.

If you want to import a record try this (remember, though, if a database supports the Direct Export option, it’s still easier to use that!)

  1. Click on the References and select Import
  2. Under Import Filter/Data Source, select University of Warwick
  3. Choose the name of the database you saved the references from
  4. Click the Browse button to locate the file you saved, then click Import.

Note: occasionally, databases are available from more than one supplier. If this is the case, you need to make sure you choose the correct one – you can normally get the name of the software or supplier from the database itself.

Thanks to Martin Wolf and Terry Bucknell of the University of Liverpool for their help with this.
