RefWorks Tutorials

RefWorks offers a guide to help you get started with the system and use it effectively.

RefWorks Tips

RefWorks uses pop-up windows. When you are using Refworks, it's best to turn off your browser's pop-up blocker. If the pop-up blocker is on, some of the important features won't work.

When you access RefWorks from off-campus, you will be prompted to login to the library proxy server with your name and 10-digit college ID number. Then you will go to the RefWorks login screen.

What Is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a web-based reference manager that allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from article databases, text files, and various other sources. You can use these references in writing papers and automatically format the footnotes and the bibliography in seconds.

RefWorks is a subscription service provided by the Library for students, faculty, and staff of the Claremont Colleges. Access RefWorks from the Library's web site.
