What is Refworks?

RefWorks--an online management, writing and collaboration tool -- is designed to help researchers easily gather, manage, store and share all types of information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies. RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and database manager that allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases and from various sources.  You can use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds.  If you do not already have an account you can set one up here:
