What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a free (to the NYU community) web-based program you can use to organize your research. Enter citations as you work, import references retrieved from article databases and the library catalog into your RefWorks database and create bibliographies in a variety of formats. Your RefWorks bibliographies are stored on the RefWorks server and are available from any computer with Internet access. NYU students and faculty continue to have access to their RefWorks account after graduation.

What you can do with RefWorks

  • Create & organize your own personal database of references
  • Search your RefWorks database
  • Format bibliographies according to chosen style (MLA, APA, etc.)
  • Import references from a variety of catalogs & databases
  • Share your RefWorks database with users inside and outside of NYU
