RefGrab–It: Add references from webpages into your RefWorks account

Writing about web page http://www.refworks.com/Refworks/BookMarklet.asp

If you come across a website (for example, Amazon.co.uk) which contains details of a book that you would like to add to your RefWorks account, the RefGrab-It tool allows you to do that quickly.

Stage One: Installing RefGrab-It
First of all, you need to install a small piece of software. How to do this, will depend on which web browser you are using.

Internet Explorer Users
1. Within RefWorks, click on Tools, then Ref-Grab-It
2. Scroll down to the relevant section for Internet Explorer and right click the RefGrab-It link.
3. Click on Add to Favorites. Click Yes to confirm you wish to continue if you get a security message.
4. Under Create in: select Links as the folder, then click OK.
5. RefGrab-It is now available from Internet Explorer’s Links toolbar. For information on how to use RefGrab-It, see Stage Two.

Firefox Users
1. Within RefWorks, click on Tools, then RefGrab-It
2. Scroll down to the relevant section for Firefox and right click the RefGrab-It link.
3. Click Bookmark This Link.
4. Under Create in: select Bookmarks Toolbar Folder, then click OK.
5. RefGrab-It is now available from Firefox’s toolbar. For information on how to use RefGrab-It, see Stage Two.

Mac Users
1. Within RefWorks, click on Tools, then Ref-Grab-It
2. Scroll down to the relevant section for Mac users.
3. Drag the RefGrab-It link onto your browser toolbar
4. RefGrab-It is now installed. For information on how to use it, see Stage Two.

Stage Two: Using RefGrab-It to add webpage information to your RefWorks account
1. Find a webpage which contains details of a book you want to add.
2. Click on the RefGrab-It link in your browser toolbar.
3. A new page will be displayed containing the reference details. Click Import to add it to your RefWorks account.
4. The reference is put into your Last Imported folder. From here, you can choose to move it to another folder, as normal.

Note: Occasionally in Step 3, you may see a second option which says “A more complete version of this reference may be available”. To add this fuller reference to your RefWorks account, click Show me this reference, then Import.

These instructions (together with screen shots) are also available in the Library’s Advanced RefWorks workbook.
