What is RefWorks?

RefWorks Classic will no longer be available after December 2011. It is recommended you switch to Refworks version 2.0 as soon as is convenient for you!




RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic reference manager.               Login to RefWorks

What that means:

  • Organize your research
  • Build a bibliography in a variety of formats
  • Import references from many sources (article databases, web, library catalogue, etc)
  • Export references to EndNote, Reference Manger, etc
  • Access it from anywhere in the world
