Citation Management Tools

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a citation manager that allows you to import citations for books, articles, websites, and more into your RefWorks account, then organize them in folders, and create bibliographies.  RefWorks also allows you to attach full-text to the citations.  For example, you could add a citation for an article to your RefWorks account and attach a PDF of the article to the citation.  In addition, RefWorks enables you to easily create in-text citations in your research papers.  These features and more are demonstrated through Library Workshops and the RefWorks Online Tutorials.  If you would like an individual research consultation to learn more about RefWorks, please contact Dianna McKellar.
