Welcome to the RefWorks Citation Manager LibGuide. Here you will find all the information you need to get up and running with RefWorks.

What is RefWorks?

Refworks is an online research management, writing, and collaboration tool designed to help researchers easily gather, manage, store, and share all types of information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies in a variety of documentation systems (MLA, APA, Chicago, and many others). Users must create an account to store citations, etc.

RefMobile gives you the ability to view references in a RefWorks account, search within RefWorks, add a note to a reference, as well as search and import new references using an ISBN, DOI (Digital Object Identifier) or author/year using the “smart add” option.
