Login to RefWorks

RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic citation management service that is useful for tracking citations, generating bibliographies, citing sources in papers, and organizing your research. RefWorks is provided by the Sealy Library through the student technology fee. RefWorks allows you to:

  • Create your own database of citations housed on the RefWorks server which can be accessed by any web-accessible computer. You can get access to your data from anywhere! Home, work, on campus or off.
  • 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.
