If you plan on adding the item to an existing collection, click on the collection first, then click the Add a reference icon .
If you have a PDF of your article saved to your computer already, click the Add a reference icon , then click Upload document option and then use the box for drag and drop, or, to browse and search your computer.
Regardless of how you add your documents, RefWorks will try to recognize and populate the reference information. RefWorks will present you with possible matches which you can select to populate the reference fields.

Once the fields populate, you may save what you have imported and then you may look to see if the item is available in full-text using the databases at DelVal.
You can export one or more selected references to Refworks at once. This method will pull all the information from a database. It does not bring the full text over.
RefWorks has an easy to use tool that installs in any web browser called the Save to RefWorks button. The Save to RefWorks button grabs information from any web page – in some cases a complete article – and adds it to your RefWorks library.
To add the Save to RefWorks button to your browser, click on the More icon and select Tools. Simply drag the Save to RefWorks button to your browser.
Once you’ve installed it, go to any web page and click the Save to RefWorks button to capture the information.
