Phasing Out RefWorks
After careful consideration of utility, cost and usage, Gordon Library has decided to phase out access to RefWorks over the next several months. Our user community is better supported through the EndNote and EndNote Web citation management solutions suite. Access to RefWorks will continue to be available until Summer 2013. Your citations can easily be transferred from one resource to the other. Please view this guide for easy instructions on Converting References from RefWorks. Additionally, the library will hold several fall workshops to assist people with the transition from RefWorks to EndNote or EndNote Web.
Connect to RefWorks
Conveniently compile a list of sources -- as you identify them -- and save them immediately into your own personal database.
Use RefWorks to:
- Organize references and citations
- Format bibliographies and manuscripts into any style you need (APA, MLA, Chicago, and many more)
- Create in-text references or footnotes within your papers. Write-n-Cite interacts with Microsoft Word
- Import references automatically from many library databases, publisher web sites & Google Scholar
- Virtually store research documents: attach full text files (PDFs, DOCs, etc.) to references
- Share your references with others: RefShare has many features including ability to post to WPI's shared folders.
RefWorks now offers WPI Alumni Access as long as we continue to subscribe.
