What is RefWorks?


RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic reference manager.         

You can use it to:

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