This guide has been created to house support material for the new RefWorks

An Introduction to the New RefWorks

Welcome to the New RefWorks! You can access the new RefWorks via If you haven't used it before please watch the videos on this page. We have created videos for users who are already using the old version of RefWorks and new users who want to use the new RefWorks for the first time.

This update to RefWorks is a new way to collect, manage and organize research papers and documents.  You can read annotate, organize, and cite your research as well as collaborate with friends and colleagues by sharing collections. RefWorks’ drag and drop capability along with our smart document recognition makes it easy and fast to upload documents and bibliographic metadata into your library and the Save to RefWorks feature allows you to capture research from websites with the click of a button. From simple bibliographies to papers formatted with in-text citations or footnotes, RefWorks handles it all.
On this guide you will find links to support guides and videos that can help you use RefWorks. If you have any problems using RefWorks please contact us via
