What is RefWorks?

First Time?

You must sign up for an account before you can use RefWorks.



Login to RefWorks

RefWorks is a cloud-based application that helps you organize your research.  You can import and manage citations for books, articles, and other resources and create bibliographies for research papers.

RefWorks is tightly integrated with QuickSearch.  Items you save to folders in QuickSearch are automatically added to your RefWorks account once you login.


Note:  the library's basic subscription to RefWorks does not include premium tools such as importing citations from a file, browser plugins, or integration with MS Word or Google Docs.
