Basics & Bibliographies in RefWorks

Watch a short tutorial (4:39 minutes) on the basic functions of RefWorks, including bibliographies, or refer to the steps below.

You can create a bibliography:

  • from the All Documents tab
  • from any of your folders
  • from your search results

Select the folder you want to use, or the All Documents tab, or run a search and select the items you want. Click the Create bibliography icon 


Next, search for the output style you want and select it.  Your formatted bibliography will be displayed in your browser for you to copy and paste into any word processing software.

Beware!  RefWorks is not foolproof.  You must review the bibliography for correct content and formatting, and revise it as necessary.
