RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM) is an add-on for Microsoft Word that enables you to add citations and references to your Word document as you write.
If you are logged into Word on your own PC or laptop with your University of Lincoln credentials RCM will already be installed.
If you are using your own version of Word you may need to install RCM manually. RefWorks provide step by step guidance on how to do this.
To use RCM you will need to log in to sync references between Word and your RefWorks account. You will need to make sure you have set a separate alternate password in your RefWorks account to do this.
If you already have an alternative password set-up but cannot remember what this is, click on the 'Forgot your password?' link in the RCM window.
Once you have an alternate password set up you will need to use your University of Lincoln credentials to log in to RefWorks, and the separate password to access RCM within Word.
The first time you log in to RCM it may take a while to sync all of your references, especially if you have a lot.
