What is RefWorks?


RefWorks is a handy library tool that can help you:

  • keep your references organized
  • generate citations for your paper
  • create bibliographies

To make it even easier, most library databases will export references directly into RefWorks.

Graduating? RefWorks allows Alumni to keep their RefWorks accounts even after graduation. So no need to stress that you'll lose your hard found citations :)
