So let's say that you've done a search on your topic and you want to save some of the results to your RefWorks account.
The first thing you'll need to do is log into RefWorks.
Once something is ‘in’ your RefWorks, it includes a link so you are able to get back to wherever you were when you saved that reference.
So you want to make sure you are at the title level of your article or book — not just your search list — before you click ‘Save to RefWorks.’
You'll need to be logged into your RefWorks account in the browser before you start exporting. Opening it in another tab works well.

If you're on a computer you use regularly, your life with RefWorks will be way easier if you take a few moments to copy the ‘Save to RefWorks’ button to your browser's Bookmarks toolbar — sometimes called ‘Favorites.’ Here's how to do that.
Note that you need to have your Favorites or Bookmarks bar displayed at the top of your screen first.
Now, when you find an article you want to add to a RefWorks folder (see below for details), just click on the button you just installed.
This is the recommended way to save Augsburg books to your RefWorks.
If you are working on a computer browser that does not have the ‘Save to RefWorks’ button installed, you can still save information about articles to your RefWorks account. Make sure you have RefWorks open on another tab in your browser before you start.
To export a reference to RefWorks from a library database, you will use the ‘Export’ button (in some databases, it is the ‘Cite’ option) that is on the right of the screen for most databases.
Clicking on that link pulls up a dialog box. Go ahead — choose ‘Direct Export to RefWorks’ and hit ‘Save,’ noting that you may get a warning about popup blockers.
If you get a screen with a choice of which RefWorks to save to, click on the ‘Export to the New RefWorks’ option:
You should find yourself in RefWorks, with your new reference safely ensconced there.
Tag it, share it, move it to a folder — it's all yours. Enjoy!
If you get this screen, it means that you did not log into RefWorks ahead of time, or you are logged in from a different browser. You can log in now.
