Descriptions: RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic management tool that enables users to organize and create a personal database online, format bibliographies and manuscripts, and import references from a variety of databases using the already-created Import Filters. Users can establish links to RSS feeds and import data from those feeds directly. RefWorks automatically creates author, descriptor and periodical indexes when importing data. It can be used across multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac, and Unix. Individual sign-up is required. For RefWorks tutorials in video format, click here. Training videos on Flow, the tool available from Summon, can also be found at the above link. If you are prompted for a Group Code while using RefWorks, you can find it in your original sign-up email from RefWorks; if you didn't save it, please contact us for that information. RefWorks is available in mobile format; see "RefMobile". NOTE: You can retain access to your RefWorks account indefinitely after graduation or departure from your TMC academic institution!

Descriptions: SHERPA/RoMEO and its companion sites make up a useful, frequently-updated reference suite on open-access scholarly publishing and archiving rules for text and data. Specifically, RoMEO is a resource for looking up publishers' copyright policy information; SHERPA/FACT is the Funders' and Authors' Compliance Tool, and SHERPA/JULIET is the resource for information on research funders' (like NIH or National Science Foundation) open-access policies: what may or must be archived in an open-access repository, the stage of publication at which the work may be deposited, and guidelines for when the material must be made publicly available.
