New RefWorks: Copying this Guide

Copying This Guide

We've had a number of questions from folks who would like to copy this guide.   As with the rest of the ProQuest guides, please do feel free to copy this guide!    If you are having problems finding this guide, steps and screenshots are below. 

Caveats: 

  • We use CMS v.2, so if your site is still in v.1 you won't be able to copy it using the instructions below.  
  • With Springshare's moving guides to servers on other continents, there is an issue with not being able to copy guides if your own guides are not housed on the US cluster.   If your site is hosted outside the US cluster, our guides won't show up in your results list.  Springshare is looking at ways to allow cross-region sharing, but nothing is immanent, unfortunately. 

For institutions falling into either of these categories, you will need to copy and paste the content.
