This page covers the Legacy version of RefWorks. "New" RefWorks will replace the legacy version in December 2017.
When using Microsoft Word, you may need to login to RefWorks with the University of Delaware Library Group Code.
If you do not know the Group Code, go to the Library home page and select Ask a Librarian. Be sure to identify yourself as a UD student, faculty, or staff.
If there is no librarian available, there is another login option that does not require the Group Code:
In your RefWorks account, select Tools, Write-N-Cite.
Copy the code in the box on the top right of the download screen,and paste it in the login screen.
Later, contact Ask a Librarian to get the group code.
For information about APA rules on in-text citations and references, see the resources on this guide:
