Adding Date Accessed to your bibliography

When referencing sources on the Internet, some referencing styles specify that you must include the date you accessed the resource. Some don't, which is why it isn't a default on the Harvard UoB output style we suggest you use. But if you do want to add Date Accessed, there is a way to do it.


  • First go to the Bibliography menu and select Output Style Editor.
  • Select Harvard UoB and press Save As (choose a file name eg Claire's Harvard UoB)
  • From the Style drop down list select your 'new' output style and press Edit.
  • Select the Retrieved date field from the left hand list and the links field and move them across using the green arrows.
  • You can then annotate your references in RefWorks to include  "Accessed:  " before the date, or you can do this in the Word document after you have generated your bibliography


Importing references from Web of Science

We are having an issue with importing references to RefWorks from Web of Science. If you have already logged into RefWorks, it works fine. But if you haven't, it says that it has exported the references, but when you go into RefWorks they aren't there. We are investigating this with both suppliers, but for the time being please make sure you are already logged into RefWorks in another tab before trying to export Web of Science references.
