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.
We have located RefWorks in two places on the library website: under the Electronic Reference Tools menu, and on the "R" page for E-Resources (Databases). Also, when you export citations from one of the library databases (see Exporting Citations page), the RefWorks login page will be displayed.
Getting Started with RefWorks
Before using RefWorks for the first time, you must create an account by selecting the "Sign up for a new account" link on the Login page. In order for RefWorks to recognize you as a Rowan user, you must be on campus or logged into the campus portal.
This video tutorial shows you how to get started using RefWorks.
