What is RefWorks?
RefWorks is a web-based application provided by the Henderson Library that will allow you to:

  • Gather references automatically from book and article databases and web pages while you research
  • Format your papers and citations instantly in a wide variety of styles (MLA, APA, Turabian, etc.)
  • Create and organize a personal online database of your research sources
  • Access your information online from any computer, anywhere, anytime, even from your smart phone
  • Share your databases with anyone, even if they don’t have a Refworks account
  • Transfer references between Refworks and other citation style managers such as Endnote and Zotero
