RefWorks: Plug Ins

Refworks allows users to import bibliographic information and auto-generate citations and bibliographies.

Plug Ins

RefWorks plug ins are also useful:

  • Save to RefWorks, which enables you to add web resources (websites, pdfs, references, etc.) that you find while browsing to RefWorks
  • RefWorks for Google Docs, which allows you to access and cite your references while working in Google Docs

To install these plug ins:

  1. Go to
  2. In the top menu, click Tools, and then in the drop-down menu, select Tools
  3. Follow the instructions for your plug in of choice

Please Note: Write-N-Cite and RefWorks Citation Manager, which are RefWorks plug ins that enable you to use RefWorks directly from Microsoft Word--are unfortunately not available to Union because they are not supported by Union College ITS.
