What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic software package that enables you to:

  • Organize your research
  • Create a bibliography in a variety of citation styles, including APA, MLA and Chicago
  • Import references from many data sources
  • Create bibliographies in different document formats (Word, RTF, HTML, etc.)
  • Include citations while you write your paper
  • Being web-based means no software to download and update, and you can access your personal account from any computer connected to the internet.


Coming Soon

  • A  new version of Refworks is coming! The New RefWorks is the next generation of reference management software empowering both researchers and librarians to do more. It combines powerful citation management functionality including database import, web capture tools and thousands of flexible citation styles, plus a refined user experience, full-text management, collaboration and other features you’d expect from a total reference management solution.
  • To try out the new version set up an account using your UNLV e-mail.
