Q. I'm using RefWorks and can't find the references I imported yesterday. Where did they go?


If you don't put your new RefWorks records in folders during, or immediately after, import, the records may be a bit hard to find.

There are three ways to find records that aren't in folders, you can either:

1.  locate the references of interest in the list of "all references" by using the "View" menu to select "All References"  and then sorting by "Created".

A screenshot shows use of the "View" menu to select the "All References" option.  A blue arrow points to the "Sort by" menu from which the "Created" option has been selected.

2.  Click on the "Not in a Folder"  link and sort references by "Created".  If the references are not in the  "Not in a folder" location, try the "Last Imported" folder.

A screenshot shows the position of the "Not in a Folder" link and the "Last Imported" link in the "Folders" box.


3.  Of course, you can also use RefWorks search and/or look-up tools to locate the reference/s of interest to you.

A screenshot points out the position of the "Advanced" option in the "Search" menu at the "Search" box in the grey bar that also holds the menu headers.
