Proquest RefWorks

What is ProQuest RefWorks?


RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and database manager for your references. Primary benefits of using RefWorks include:

  • Keep track of your articles you want to use by importing the citation information into your RefWorks account. Your saved references will serve as its own database for when you write your paper.
  • The Write-N-Cite program inserts citations into your paper to create a bibliography list in ALA, MLA, Chicago or other formats. This time-saving tool will shed the hassle of having to write your bibliography list in the end.
