RefWorks Guide

What is RefWorks?

  • RefWorks is a web–based reference management system that allows you to create a personal database with your references and to format references in a wide variety of citation styles (over 4,000!). References can be imported into RefWorks from many online databases and from Google Scholar. RefWorks also formats in-text citations, using either the Write-N-Cite plug-in for Word (available in both ProQuest Refworks and Legacy RefWorks) and the RefWorks Citation Manager (available with the new ProQuest ReWorks) which works in both Word and Google Docs.

Who has access to RefWorks?

  • RefWorks is available to all Bloomsburg students, faculty, staff, and alumni*, either on or off-campus.
