Getting Started with RefWorks: Home

Refworks is a personal information manager that allows users to create their own online database of citations that can be organized and used when writing a paper or article.

What is RefWorks

RefWorks is a personal information manager that allows users to create their own online database of bibliographic information that can be organized and used when writing a paper or article and then formatted in a variety of output styles (Chicago/Turabian, ACS, APA, ASA, etc.).

Because RefWorks is web-based, users can access their account from any computer with internet access. Data is stored on RefWork’s servers – not locally.
