What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is an online research citation management tool that allows you to collect, store, and manage bibliographic information.

With RefWorks, you can:

  • Create and manage your own database of bibliographic references;

  • Export references from article databases, library catalogs and from the Web; 

  • Generate in-text citations and formatted bibliographies with Write-N-Cite or One Line/Cite 

  • Share your references in a variety of ways; with RefShare you can share a database, a folder of information, or a single record with others at or outside of Skidmore College.
