What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a citation management software program, paid for by the University Library and offered FREE to faculty, staff, and students at the College of William and Mary.  RefWorks collects, stores, and organizes citations from books, articles, web sites, and other sources.


  • Export records from databases to RefWorks seamlessly - takes the tedium out of reference tracking.
  • Access your RefWorks personal citation database from anywhere - on campus, at home, or abroad via the Web.
  • Instantly create bibliographies or insert references directly into MS-Word, using the citation style of your choice, with RefWorks' Write-N-Cite feature.
  • All citations in RefWorks allow you quick access to the e-version of journal articles, and more.
  • Use with your PC or Mac computer.
