RefWorks : Online Learning

Adding attachments

When you import a record into your RefWorks account you are only adding the bibliographic information (enough for a bibliography). RefWorks does allow you to attach a document such as a pdf file or an image to a record.

To attach a file to your RefWorks record:

  • Save the file that you want to attach - this can be anywhere as long as you can locate it again.
  • Locate the appropriate RefWorks record and go into the Edit page (the pencil icon).

  • Click on Save Reference
  • A link to the document will appear in your record.
