What is RefWorks?

Welcome to RefWorks!

This update to RefWorks is a new way to collect, manage and organize research papers and documents.  You can read, annotate, organize, and cite your research as well as collaborate with friends and colleagues by sharing collections.
 
Refworks supports many referencing styles,  we have four site wide styles you will have access to. Many of our databases are supported by Refworks making it very easy to export references. 

RefWorks’ now supports drag and drop capability, along with smart document recognition to make it easy and fast to upload documents and bibliographic data into your library. The Save to RefWorks feature allows you to capture research from websites with the click of a button.

 

An institutional account is available to anyone at a subscribing institution and includes 10GB of document storage, unlimited sharing inside and outside the institution, easy institution-wide sharing, phone and email tech support, training and more.

To create a RefWorks account:

  1. Go to http://refworks.proquest.com and click the “create an account” link.
  2. Fill in your information making sure to use your institutional email address (you can’t sign up with @yahoo.com, @gmail.com, etc.).  Using your institutional email address will help us know whether you are entitled to an institutional account (with all the benefits mentioned above!).
