As students, researchers and teachers all need to keep track of a vast number of references.

The university has a subscription to RefWorks – an online reference management tool that will help you store your references in one place. When writing your paper you can insert citations and bibliographies in your document. Refworks also gives you an opportunity to share your references with others.

RefWorks has introduced a new version called New Refworks. The Refworks team at the university library will gladly assist you in transferring you references, attachments and self-created output styles from the old to the new system of RefWorks.
