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.
