Introducing...RefWorks

RefWorks Logo

Writing a research paper but need help with your citations?  Hate having to put together the bibliography at the end?  Need a place to keep track of all of your research throughout the semester?  The library is pleased to announce a new subscription to RefWorks:
RefWorks -- an online research management, writing and collaboration tool -- is designed to help researchers easily gather, manage, store and share all types of information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies.
As you perform research throughout the semester, RefWorks can be used to store citations for relevant resources as well as articles pulled from databases.  Many of the databases the library subscribes to work closely with RefWorks so that articles and citations can be exported directly into RefWorks.  Once stored in your account, you can gain access to your references from anywhere in the world.  You can even share your bibliography with anyone else that has a RefWorks account so that you can collaborate on research projects. RefWorks also works closely with Microsoft Word through a small application called "Write-N-Cite" available once you have logged into your RefWorks account.  As you are typing your paper you can use Write-N-Cite to insert parenthetical citations in the format of your choosing (MLA, APA, or hundreds of other styles).  As you insert the citations, Write-N-Cite is also working to create your bibliography at the end of your paper in the proper format. There are several ways to access RefWorks:
  • a link on the Library Homepage, right below the "Ask a Librarian" box
  • by selecting "Find an Article (Databases)" from the Library Homepage, then selecting "R" under Databases by Title
  • there is a RefWorks tab on several of the Research/Subject Guides
There is a learning curve with RefWorks.  Luckily, RefWorks provides several resources that can help you get started with RefWorks: For help using RefWorks, please take a look at one of the resources above, or contact a librarian.
