RefWorks

RefWorks is an online bibliographic management utility. The program requires creating a personal account, but the information you keep in your account can be organized into numerous folders, allowing you to work on various projects simultaneously.

RefWorks interfaces with many of our subscription databases to allow you to import citations; create bibliographies and citation lists in various formats; and export the information to your word processor in any of over 100 styles, including APA, Chicago, and MLA. In addition, with "Write-N-Cite" (a free RefWorks plug-in), you can use your information for textual citations within the body of your paper as you go. To set up an appointment to learn how RefWorks can help you with your research, contact one of the Reference Librarians. (http://academic.scranton.edu/department/wml/staffdir.html)
