What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a way to manage citations and documents as part of the research process.

You can:

  • Save documents for access on multiple computers/devices
  • Add highlights and notes to documents
  • Save and edit citation information and create bibliographies
  • Organize files into folders and share them with other people
  • Save web pages for later viewing

Alumni access

Q.: I'm graduating. Can I keep my account?

A.: Yes!

You can continue to use your RefWorks account. However, you will lose remote access to much of the library's online content: journals, e-books, streaming media, and databases after your affiliation with UW ends.

If you plan to continue your education at another university, follow the help link in RefWorks to email RefWorks Support about transferring your account.
