You may also login from the most pages on the Tulane Library Website. In the upper right-hand corner, click on Login and then select Refworks.

RefWorks

What is RefWorks?

  • An online tool that helps you conduct research and compose research papers.
  • Functions with Microsoft Word and other word processors to create footnotes, citations and a bibliography for your paper, formatted into the correct style (MLA, APA, Chicago Style, etc.).
  • Allows you to save and organize your citations as you do research. Each reference can be extensively annotated to make the writing process easier.
  • Works with library database subscriptions to make a seamless transition between researching and writing.
  • Functionality is similar to that of the EndNote software. Unlike EndNote Web, RefWorks is available to you after you graduate with an alumni account.

How do I access RefWorks?
