Using Legacy RefWorks

Resources to help you use the Legacy RefWorks reference management tool provided by the Amelia Cirio Library.

Welcome to Legacy RefWorks!

Legacy RefWorks is a web-based program that allows you to easily collect, manage, and organize all of your bibliographic citations.

Legacy RefWorks is now the older version of RefWorks.  This product will exist until January 1, 2019. After this date, it will be unsupported. 

If you are new to RefWorks, please install the new citation tool known as New RefWorks.

If you already utilize Legacy RefWorks, you can upgrade your account from Legacy to New Refworks and transfer all of your collections to the new product.

Using RefWorks you can:

  • Quickly add/import and manage citations for articles and other resources you use in your research
  • Create bibliographies in all major styles (MLA, APA, Turabian, Chicago, etc.) and export bibliographies as document types (Word, RTF, HTML, etc.)
  • Use RefShare to share your RefWorks library or specific folders with others
  • Cite resources while you write using Write-n-Cite
