Free workshops available to help you with your referencing – sign up now!

Are you confused by referencing? Befuddled by bibliographies? Well, don’t worry because you certainly aren’t the only one. The good news is that by signing up for our Referencing Workshops library staff can show you how to make the whole process of referencing so much easier.

refworks logoHere at the University of Aberdeen all students are entitled to a free account with RefWorks, an online reference management programme. It helps you store all your references and also create beautiful bibliographies for your assignments and dissertations.

fif logoTo find out more about this really useful software come along to free workshops taking place in The Sir Duncan Rice Library over the next two weeks. These two-part workshops, for undergraduate and taught postgraduate students, will introduce you to the software and the ways in which it integrates with Microsoft Word to help you produce your perfectly referenced coursework.

RefWorks is suitable for both Microsoft and Mac computers.

More information on RefWorks is available in some of our online Library Guides.

An important point, however, is that RefWorks will not be suitable for students studying within the School of Law, as the unique OSCOLA referencing style used within the legal field is not supported by RefWorks. RefWorks is also not compatible with many of the legal academic databases used by students and researchers in Law.

To find out more information and book a place on the Find it Fast! Using RefWorks Workshops taking place between October 20th and 29th visit www.abdn.ac.uk/coursebooking, and search for Reference Management.

We look forward to seeing you there to help you get on top of your referencing.
