Group codes are used by some institutions to help RefWorks identify a user's affiliation. We are using the library proxy server for all off-campus access to RefWorks and Write-N-Cite.
For Refworks: Use the links on this web site to Login to RefWorks from off-campus, since our links are proxy-safe.
Mac or Word 2007 users: Get the Group Code by following this link . Enter it as prompted by WNC. This option is recommended for Mac users, Word 2007 users, for those using beta versions of WNC, and for anyone experiencing access problems. Access to the Group Code is limited to current UNC-Chapel Hill affiliates.
A newer version of Write-N-Cite might be available. If there are Write-N-Cite updates, try installing it to see if this fixes the problem.
To install the most recent version, login to your RefWorks account, select Write-N-Cite from the Tools menu, and follow the instructions.
RefShare is a feature that allows you to easily share references and folders from your RefWorks account with colleagues both inside and outside of the UNC community. You may want to use this feature for collaborative student projects, reading lists or faculty publications lists.
To use RefShare:

Note that even if you share a folder, your collaborators will not be able to add or edit references. They will, however, be able to add notes.
There is a direct export for RefWorks built into the individual record screens in the online catalog. Perform your search, and click on "Cite This" to import the item into RefWorks. (If you are not logged into Refworks, you will be directed to the logon screen) See below:
For detailed information on how to download your citations from particular databases, visit the following link to information provided by RefWorks:
First, always search Google Scholar from the Blakley Library Database A-Z List. This will allow RefWorks to use the library proxy server when you import Scholar references into RefWorks. Additionally, starting from the library web page will mean you also automatically have direct access, both on and off campus, to subscription articles already paid for through the library.
Next, you'll need to set your Google Scholar preferences to enable importing of references into RefWorks.
