What 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.
The functionality of RefWorks is similar to that of the EndNote software. Unlike EndNote Web, RefWorks is available to you after you graduate with an alumni account.
