Ref Works and ILL – a match made in the computer

Do you have trouble remembering what you requested via Interlibrary Loan?

Use RefWorks to track your ILL requests and you will be able to cite your materials when you receive them!

In your RefWorks account, create a new folder called ILL. For each request you submit you can add the information to this folder. When you write your paper, you can use the information in this folder to create your citations.

Don't have a RefWorks account or need more information on how to use RefWorks? Here are some links you should find helpful:

You can always contact Interlibrary Loan (or call 940-898-3758) to check on the status of your requests.
