A step-by-step guide to using RefWorks

About RefWorks

RefWorks enables you to:

  • import references directly from databases,
  • organize your references into folders,
  • insert references in any format into your research paper, and
  • create a bibliography with one click.

RefWorks is free to the Boston College community and available via the web.

As of August 2016, New RefWorks has been made available by ProQuest. To begin using New RefWorks, just sign up for a new account and if necessary, move all of the references into your new account. When you create a New RefWorks account, your old account will still be available. Old RefWorks will be permanently discontinued by ProQuest in January 2018.

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