  • Download selected results from library periodical databases and CUNY+, the library catalog.

  • Generate bibliographies effortlessly in APA and many other bibliographic styles (MLA, Chicago, Turabian,etc.)

  • Write papers using MS Word and insert citations as you write and generate a reference list for end of paper using the Write-N-Cite feature.

  • Export your RefWorks database to your personal computer for use in other bibiliographic management software programs such as EndNote, ProCite, & Reference Manager.
