Citing Resources/Using RefWorks

Why cite sources?
Whenever you quote or base your ideas on another's work, you must document the source you used. Even when you do not quote directly from another work, if reading that source contributed to the ideas presented in your work, you must give the authors proper credit.
» Note that citing differs between "scholarly" work and journalism. Ask you instructor for guidance as needed.

This webpage has information on citation styles, styles guides, and plagiarism.

RefWorks is a web-based tool that allows users to create their own personal database by importing citations from online databases (like PubMed). You can use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds. Web-based means you can access RefWorks from any computer with Internet access. Access to RefWorks is provided by the UCB Library to UCB students, staff, and faculty. Click Login to create a RefWorks password and get started!

» RefWorks' Output Style Preview Utility provides you with an easy way to see how a particular style (eg, APA, MLA, etc.) is formatted.
