What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a web-based referencing management software that allows you to create your own personal database of references. You can:

  • Import and store references from text files, online databases, and other various sources,
  • Automatically create citations and references to insert into your assignments!

You still need to double-check your references, even if you use RefWorks to automatically generate them.

More information on using RefWorks is on the Research Library Guide.
