Additional RefWorks class tomorrow (Wed 15th October)

In response to demand we have scheduled an additional RefWorks class on Wednesday 15th October from 4-5pm in room 337 in Aberdeen Business School.

This session will cover the use of the RefWorks reference management system to store your references, insert citations into your text and create a reference list for your work. It works with a range of referencing styles. However please note the OSCOLA style it provides does not work with the Law School’s requirements.

Booking is essential. To sign up for the class please visit our calendar of classes.
