INSTALLING and USING REFWORKS AND WRITE’N’CITE

Installing RefWorks is a multi-step process.  All steps must be completed accurately for the program and its Add Ins to work

Step 1:  Create your RefWorks account at http://libraries.stjohns.edu/refworks

Step 2:  Once you have logged into RefWorks go to HELP and review the Tutorials.  It will take approximately and hour to review them all but this is essential for an understanding of how to use the features of RefWorks and Write’N’Cite.

Step 3:  After creating your account and logging into RefWorks you will need to download an add-In called Write’N’ Cite.  Write’N’Cite will be found in the TOOLS tab once you are in RefWorks.  Follow the instructions to complete the download. (Be sure Microsoft Word is closed before you start the download.)

Step 4:  Make Write’N’Cite usable from home, office and anywhere off-campus.
