RefWorks is a powerful online research management, writing and collaboration tool designed to help researchers at all levels easily gather, organize, store and share all types of information and to instantly generate citations and bibliographies. This Research Guide will help you get started. 

You will need to create an individual account in order to use RefWorks, which you can do by going here: RefWorks Login/Create Account.
