Citation Management Tools

A guide to citation and bibliography management tools that help you collect, store, and organize your research.

RefWorks

RefWorks is a web-based citation and bibliographic management tool that allows you to save and organize your citations as you 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 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 is available to you after you graduate using your alumni account.

 

Legacy Users

Details on migrating your records from RefWorks (Legacy) to RefWorks (New) are forthcoming and will soon be included on this guide. At this point, we encourage active RefWorks (Legacy) users to continue using the existing interface for ongoing projects. Both interfaces will be available for users during the Transition Period, which will last through 2017.

How to Set Up a new RefWorks (New) Account

  • Click on "Create Account."
