RefWorks citation manager is available for all current students, faculty, and staff.

Citation management software helps keep track of what references you are using and assists with citing them. RefWorks can output your reference list in many citation styles, including MLA, APA, Turabian, and others. It is important to verify that your reference list is in the correct format, as RefWork's generated citations may not always exactly match your specific requirements.

You can begin using RefWorks logging in here.
