RefWorks FAQs

RefWorksWhat is RefWorks?

RefWorks is an online tool that helps you conduct research and compose research papers. RefWorks 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.). In addition, RefWorks allows you to save and organize your citations as you do research. Each reference can be extensively annotated to make the writing process easier. RefWorks works with our existing library database subscriptions to make a seamless transition between researching and writing.

RefWorks is Web based, so it can be used from any computer with Internet access. Tulane has a campus-wide subscription to RefWorks, so there is no software to purchase.

How do I access RefWorks?
