RefWorks is a Web-based bibliography and database manager that allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases and other sources. Use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds with Write-N-Cite. You must create an account the first time you use RefWorks, and log into that account each time you return.
Click on "Guides, Tutorials & Tools" from the left side menu at CUA Libraries' website and then click on "RefWorks", the first link under "Tools". Or click here to go directly. If you are off campus, you then need to log into ALADIN using your CUA ID. Access to RefWorks is restricted to current students, faculty and staff of the University. (Alumni can still access it via Office of Alumni Relations.) Once you reach the RefWorks website, you will need to create or log into your personal account in RefWorks.
Please view the following instruction guide and online tutorial for help in getting started.
