How to use RefWorks Citation Management Software

RefWorks is a service that helps you save, organize, format, and include sources for all of your assignments.

Its best feature is its full integration with the library's databases: anything you find in your searches can be saved to RefWorks with just a few clicks. Your RefWorks account is available to you on any computer using your RCC email address and the password you create. Here's how to get started:

  1. Create your account here, using your RCC email address as your username.
  2. Watch some tutorials here, to get an idea of what a citation manager is, why you want one, and how it works.
  3. Try some database searches, and click the "cite" button on articles' detail pages to save some sources to your RefWorks library.
  4. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., your librarians, with questions or concerns. We'll be delighted to help!

Watch the library events calendar for workshops about Citations, Avoiding Plagiarism, and Using RefWorks for more information.
