RefWorks - New Tool to Cite While You Write
RefWorks is an extremely useful tool for VCU students, faculty, and staff. RefWorks is an online citation database manager that allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from online databases. You can then directly import citations into your term paper, grant proposal, research article, or other publication, and automatically generate a formatted bibliography.
RefWorks allows you to:
* Easily generate a bibliography and format it in any major bibliographic style (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc). RefWorks also has a library of citation styles from publishers, making it easy to format your bibliography for Nature, Science, or other journal titles.
* Access RefWorks from any location. RefWorks is a web-accessible tool available through the VCU Libraries Web site for both on campus and off-campus users.
* Share your personal RefWorks database with others. RefWorks is a great tool for researchers working on grant proposals and other collaborative projects.
Access to RefWorks is available through a number of VCU Libraries links including the QuickLinks menu, A-Z list, library catalog, and the RefWorks guide.
