RefWorks is a reference management software package that allows you to:

  • Save references from sources such as ejournals, databases, library catalogues, websites
  • Compile your own database of references
  • Insert correctly formatted citations into your documents
  • Automatically generate bibliographies and lists of works cited

RefWorks is web-based so can be used from any computer with an internet connection. Refworks is funded by the Library and is free to Roehampton students and staff (and alumni).

For full instructions on setting up a Refworks account and using it for managing your references, please visit the Refworks page on the library web site
