RefWorks: What is it? How do I use it?

Refworks is an online application that makes it easy to organize information about articles, books, websites, and other research documents. It also simplifies the process of creating a bibliography (or references cited list), and when paired with Write-n-Cite, simplifies the process of creating in-text citations. Kansas State University faculty, staff, and students may use RefWorks. Students who create a RefWorks account while enrolled at K-State may retain access to their account after they graduate. K-State Libraries often provides free classes on using RefWorks.
