Administrative Tools Information

The Administrative Tools section provides information to help administrators manage and support their RefWorks subscription.

Information & Tools
There are numerous tools within the Administrative module that enables you to create a customized; more locally integrated service for your users including:

  • Setting Preferences (organize customized lists for Import Filters, Output Styles and Z39.50 sites)
  • Subscriber Information (changing items such as Name of Institute on Login Page, Group Code, Administrative Password, etc.)
  • Customize the Confirmation Email (message that is sent out when a new account is set-up)
  • Customize the Focus Area (identifies type of user and specialty subject area or department users select during registration)
  • Site Wide Output Styles (adding an output style that has been created locally and posting for all users to use within the organization)
  • Site Wide Z39.50 Sites (adding commercial online service sites such as CSA, OCLC, OVID, etc.)
  • Open URL Configurations
  • RefShare Settings (activating/de-activate users; create institution or departmental central web-page)
  • Usage Reports (account activity/non-activity)

Master Account (Login Required)

As a RefWorks Administrator, you have access to a Master Account. This Master Account is like any individual user account, however, it is what you will need to use as the first step in:

  • Creating custom output styles for site-wide use
  • Adding custom Z39.50 sites for site-wide use
Detailed information and instructions on all these features can be found in Online Help.
