Why use RefWorks?

Create your own personal database with RefWorks

  • When you find an interesting article or book, capture the bibliographic informtion so that it's easy to find again.  Import references from Holmes, WorldCat Local, AcademicOneFile, Web of Science ... pretty much any database that you're using.
  • Arrange your references into subject folders -- by topic or class, for example.
  • Attach the pdfs of articles that you've downloaded connected to the record in RefWorks.
  • Later, search through the database that you've created to find the articles that you need.
