Citing Sources: RefWorks - Citation Management Software

This guide contains information on how to cite sources in a variety of styles.

Resource Update

Access and support for RefWorks will end as of October 1, 2020. You will be able to export your RefWorks citations until November 30, 2020. The Libraries recommend and will support the citation manager Zotero as a replacement for RefWorks. 

Follow the steps on our migrating your citations from RefWorks to Zotero page to transition products.



*If you are a first-time user, click “Create account” on the first RefWorks screen
