RefWorks Resource Guide: Home

Citation Resources

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a perfect database / technology.

While RefWorks can get you started with formating your works cited lists, be sure to check the accuracy of the citations against the manual of the style you must use (MLA, APA, Chicago Manual of Style, Turabian).


    This guide provides assistance in using the new RefWorks, a database which allows the user to collect and organize references and access them from any Internet-connected computer. References or citations may be organized into folders according to topics, and they may be utilized to create bibliographies using MLA, APA, or other style formats.

RefWorks will allow you to:

  • Organize and manage research.
  • Access research from any Web-connected source.
  • Collaborate/share research via the Web.  Includes the ability to provide feedback and create bibliographies, further enriching collaborative research.
