This FAQ is about the New (Blue) version of RefWorks, released to Quinnipiac in 2020. If you are currently using the Legacy (Orange) version of RefWorks, please consider migrating to the newer, more full-featured version, using these instructions. Information about the Legacy version can be found here


Creating a subfolder in New Refworks is simple!

1. Select a reference that you want to assign to a subfolder. References may be assigned to multiple folders & subfolders. 

2. Once you've selected your reference, click the "Assign to Folder" icon from the top toolbar.

3. Select Create (+Create).


4. Name your new subfolder.

5. Select which folder you want this subfolder to become a part of.

6. When ready, select "Create folder" to create the new subfolder. It will contain the reference you previously assigned to it.

The subfolder will be viewable from your "My Folders" list, appearing as dropdown menu to the folder it is stored within. Look for a little arrow to expand/collapse this menu.
