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

Aalborg University subscribes to RefWorks – an online reference management tool that will help you store your references in one place. When writing papers and articles, 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 of the programme called New Refworks. The university library's Refworks team will gladly assist you in transferring you references, attachments and self-created output styles from the old to the new version of of RefWorks.
