1. It takes time to learn to use RefWorks. Don't put it off until just before your assignment is due.
2. RefWorks takes longer to learn than some of the free tools because it's a fuller and more developed system.
3. "Garbage In - Garbage Out." If the information in your RefWorks form is misspelled or incorrect, it will be misspelled or incorrect on the bibliography. Occasionally citations imported from databases are corrupted or incomplete. Occasionally, even serious scholars make mistakes when inputting information. Check your outputs before submitting them for a grade.
4. FILES. Organize your citations into files according to whatever grouping works for you and your topic.
