      Managing Citations

      Use RefWorks to manage citations from journals, books, documents, and internet sites.

      First time users will need to create an account which will permit a user to store citations indefinitely for repeated use. 

      Once records are in RefWorks, they can be added to folders, and bibliographies can be created in a preferred style.

      Use the Refworks Tutorial to learn more about this useful database.

      RefWorks is accessible from the list of online databases on the homepage.
