A step-by-step guide to using RefWorks

About RefWorks

Use RefWorks to:

  • import references from databases, web sites, or other citation managers
  • organize your references into folders and share folders
  • insert references in any format into your research paper
  • create a bibliography

RefWorks is available to Boston College students, faculty, and staff. 

RefWorks is available on a new platform with new features and tools.  To begin using New RefWorks, sign up for a new account and if necessary, move all of your references over. When you create a New RefWorks account, your old account will still be available through 2017.

For additional assistance with RefWorks, please e-mail a librarian or call 617-552-4472.

Create a RefWorks Account

To create an account:

screenshot of New RefWorks login page, with a circle around "create account."

  • Once registered, login with your new username and password. (Although you must use your BC email, your RefWorks account is unrelated to your Agora Portal login.)
