What RefWorks Does

RefWorks produces bibliographies according to your chosen style manual (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.).

In RefWorks you create a folder for each of your chosen research topics. Into this folder you export or import citations. These citations stay in that folder until you wish to produce a bibliography according to your chosen style guide.

To start a new folder, go into RefWorks and select New Folder. Give the folder a name.

Important Notes!

There are known issues with Internet Explorer and RefWorks. Also, Safari does not work well with RefWorks.

We recommend a different Internet browser, such as Mozilla Firefox.

Finally, please make sure that pop-up windows are enabled in your Internet browser. For instructions on allowing pop-up windows, select your browser below.
