Search online catalog or database

RefWorks provides access to a large number of library catalogues, including the catalogue of the University Library (UL) of the EUR. You can search a catalogue and import the titles directly in Refworks. PubMed is also available in this way.

You can add references in the following way: 

  1. Open RefWorks and log in.
  2. Click in the grey bar at the top of the page on Search and select Online Catalog or Database.
  3. Select the library catalogue from the drop-down menu, for example Erasmus University Rotterdam.
  4. You can type your searchterms behind Terms in the Quick Search; you can also choose for Advanced Search, that's a more specific search.
  5. Click in right down corner at Search.
  6. Your search results appear.
  7. Mark the references you wish to import and click Import. Click OK to confirm the import.
  8. RefWorks shows how may titles are imported. Click the button View Last Imported to check the titles or close the screen.
The interface of the UL-catalogue, PubMed and the other catalogues you can search this way, is adjusted for RefWorks. When you want to use the advanced search options, like searching with MesH-terms in PubMed, it's better to use the originial database or catalogue.
