Using RefWorks: Introduction

A tutorial for using our RefWorks bibliographic management software.

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a software application that manages citations and creates bibliographies. Rowan University Libraries has purchased a license for RefWorks, so everyone who is affiliated with Rowan University (students, faculty, and staff) can use it for free.

You can find RefWorks on the library website under Databases A-Z on the "R" page. Also, when you export citations from one of the library databases (see Exporting Citations page), the RefWorks login page will be displayed.
