The guide is designed to assist with locating case law, legal reviews, legislative history, and scholarly articles.

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a citation manager that allows you to import citations for books and articles into your RefWorks account, organize them in folders, and create bibliographies.  It also allows you to attach electronic versions of these articles to the citations.  For example, you could add a citation to your RefWorks account and attach a PDF of the article to the citation.  RefWorks also provides in-text citations.  These features and more are demonstrated through Library Workshops and the RefWorks Online Tutorial.
