Online Research Tools

RefWorks - Refworks is an online research management, writing, and collaboration tool designed to help researchers easily gather, manage, store, and share all types of information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies. RefWorks is similar to tools like EndNote, but there is no software to load. Use RefWorks to format documents including footnotes and bibliographies in dozens of styles like MLA, APA, etc.

•   Current users of RefWorks who graduate will be able to maintain their current RefWorks content, but should change account information to an Alumni User from the Tools-Update User Info section of their account upon login.

•   New users can create an account by clicking "Sign Up for a New Account" on the login page.
