A new feature offered in RefWorks called “RefGrabit” allows you to capture the data that you need to cite books and web pages easier than ever before. RefGrabit works as a button on your browser (kind of like del.icio.us). You just browse to any web page that references a book–or any ordinary web page–and click the RefGrabit button.
RefGrabit works well from the L&C Library Catalog and Summit if the book you’re looking at has an ISBN number displayed on the page. Just click the “RefGrabit” button on your browser. You’ll be taken to RefWorks where you’ll be shown a screen that says “A more complete version of this reference may be available.” Click on “show me this reference” and you’ll be taken to the complete citation for the book.
RefGrabit is also convenient for getting the basic meta data required to cite a web page (url, title, date and time accessed).
