A Guide to using RefWorks

What is RefGrab-It?

RefGrab-It works with your browser to capture bibliographic information from web pages giving you the option to import that data into your RefWorks account. It will also include additional information such as an ISBN number, DOI or an RSS feed.

Ref-GrabIt must be downloaded to your computer. It is compatible with Windows and Macs.

There are two versions of RefGrab-It for IE and Firefox. The plug-in version and the bookmarklet version. It is not recommended that you install both version. It may cause a conflict. RefGrab-It is not currently compatible with Google Chrome.

Please be aware that you may have to edit the citation once it is RefWorks. RefGrab-It may not pick up all of the information you need to cite the reference.
