Introducing RefMobile!

You may notice a new link in your RefWorks account labeled 'RefMobile'. What is it? It's a new interface that enables students and researchers to use their RefWorks web-based research database from anywhere, via web-enabled mobile phones, smart phones, and personal data assistants (PDAs).

The RefMobile interface gives users immediate access to the most commonly used RefWorks functions, including searching their entire RefWorks databases, viewing references by folders, adding and removing references from folders, creating new folders, and adding comments to Notes fields. Users can also import new references to their RefWorks account using the new SmartAdd feature.

With SmartAdd, users simply enter basic identifying information for a publication, such as ISBN number, digital object identifier (DOI) number, partial title, or author and publication year, and SmartAdd searches the Internet for the reference and imports it to RefWorks.

Contact the Database Coordinator, Linda Neyer, for the Group Code or for additional information.
