Getting Started

 What is RefWorks?
RefWorks is a citation manager. It can help you organize your research by storing citations for the articles you find. You can then use those citations to automatically generate a bibliography, formatted to whatever citation style you choose. You can even sync your RefWorks account with Microsoft Word to drop in-text citations into your document.
RefWorks looks complicated, but it's actually easy to use and very helpful. This guide will help you get started.
