Reference Management Software
If you are doing more in depth research (such as a systematic review), it can be difficult to keep track of all your sources of information. Reference Management software such as RefWorks provides lots of tools to help manage and organise your references. Help with both the new version of RefWorks and the old (legacy) RefWorks is available on the Library Guide for Referencing and on the Researchers Subject Guide.
