CECS 572: Ref Works

What is Refworks?

RefWorks is a web-based bibliography manager or citation manager. It allows you to create a personal database of references for research use and in writing papers. It's like having a set of index cards online.

RefWorks will:

  •  Import references and organize them in folders in any manner you choose.
  • Those references create a searchable database of your research.
  • Bibliographies can be created from your library of references in many citation styles.
  • RefWorks can be accessed from any Internet-capable computer; on or off-campus.
  • There is no limit to the size of your database.
  • In addition, you can share references with others when working on a group project.
  • Access to RefWorks is limited to CSULB students/faculty/staff only.
