RefWorks is an online program that helps you organize your references/citations. You can access it from anywhere, upload documents (such as articles or even your own paper), and search all your citations and attachments.

On campus:

  • Click on the Databases tab, then type “RefWorks” in the search box.
  • You must register for RefWorks the first time you visit – it’s their way of setting aside some space for you in their computer.

Please note:

  • You will need to have RefWorks open in a browser window or tab if you want to import from a database or Voyager.
  • If you use a popup blocker, you'll need to disable it temporarily, for RefWorks and any databases you're using.
