A new version of RefWorks is now available. See this guide for more information, and go to http://proxygw.wrlc.org/login?url=http://refworks.proquest.com/signup/the-george-washington-university/ to create your account.
If you already have an account on the old RefWorks v.2, you can keep it until at least Summer 2017. You can still create an account on the new version to try it out, and even import your references from the old version into the new one without closing your old account.
RefWorks is a cloud-based tool for managing citations and creating bibliographies. Through a subscription, the GW Libraries makes RefWorks available to all current students, faculty, and staff at the university. And as a GW alumnus, your RefWorks account follows you when you leave GW, for free, for as long as the University continues to subscribe to RefWorks.
Using RefWorks, you can export citations from most library databases (as well as resources like Google Scholar), annotate and organize them, and format them for insertion into a Word document or as a stand-alone bibliography.
Because it is subscription-based, if you using RefWorks from off-campus, you will need to use the Libraries' proxied link to access it: http://proxygw.wrlc.org/login?url=http://www.refworks.com/refworks (Bookmark this link in your browser for quick access.)
Alumni should access RefWorks through the link on our E-Resources for Alumni page.
