Guide to RefWorks, a cloud-based citation management system.

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic reference and citation manager. It works with word-processors to create citations in your papers as well as the bibliography in the styles you need.​

RefWorks Account Creation

To create a RefWorks Account, simply go to and use your UGA email address to register by clicking on "Create Account."  

You can also create an account by clicking on "Use Login from my Institution," and choosing UGA. 

Once you've create your account, this will be the way you log in from here on.  Once you graduate, you will need to make changes to your account in order to keep access.  You will lose access to your UGA email and your MyID once you graduate, so you need to make the following changes before you go:

* If you created an account by clicking on "Use Login from my Institution,"  you'll need to change your email and create an alternative password.  

* If you created an account by clicking on "Create an Account," you'll need to change your email address.

Regardless of how you create it, you'll click on the arrow next to your name at the top right corner of the page, and choose "Settings."









Change your email, and change your role to "Alumni."


If you created your account using the Institutional Login feature, you'll have to create an alternative password:
