Citation Style Guides:



RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic reference and citation manager. Use it to store and organize your references. There is no limit to the number of references you can store in RefWorks.

With RefWorks you can:

  • log in from anywhere to access your references
  • import references from GIL-Find and GALILEO databases
  • organize your references into folders
  • format your bibliography in MLA or many other citation styles

There is also a " Reference Citation Manager" plug-in for Word, which you can download and use to insert references into your paper as you write it. Go to Insert > Get Add-ins > RCM (Reference Citation Manager).  It will synchronize references with your RefWorks account. 

When you need to cite a reference, you’ll find it in sidebar on right. To add a citation, just select. To create a bibliography, click on the three horizontal lines in the right menu and turn on bibliography. 

[In older versions of Word, you will need to install Write and Cite instead of Reference Citation Manager.] 

For an equivalent plug-in in Google Docs, click Add-Ons and then Proquest Refworks > Manage citations.
