What Is RefWorks?

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a web-based reference manager that allows you to create your own personal database of references and documents for both academic and personal use. With RefWorks you can:

  • Easily import references from electronic databases, the UNT library catalog, websites, other reference managers, and more into your account
  • Quickly create reference lists/bibliographies for papers and projects in the citation style of your choice
  • Store, read and annotate documents

Watch the video, Create Your RefWorks Account, or see the Introduction to RefWorks handout below to get started with your account. To learn about the basic and advanced functions, view the RefWorks video tutorials.
