RefWorks: Guide to Using RefWorks: Subfolders

Research guide covering all aspects of using RefWorks as your bibliographic management tool.


Creating subfolders is easy in RefWorks. We recommended viewing the Organizing References with Folders tutorial for a demonstration of this process.  

1. Select "My Folders" on the left side of the screen. 

2. Select the name of the folder you wish to create a subfolder within.

3. Click on the three dots located to the right of the folder name. 

4. Select, "Add Subfolder."

5. Name your new subfolder and select save.


You will now see your new folder below your primary folder. You can see in the example below that the ENGL 102 folder has two subfolders.
