RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic management tool. With this tool you can collect and organize references on topics for papers or research; electronically transfer references from databases to your files; create bibliographies or lists of works cited using the citation format of your choice; create in-text references or footnotes as you write papers; and create your personal searchable database of citations.
Once you have signed up, you may access your RefWorks account any time you have a connection to the Library website. There are a few situations in which this does not work in which case you will need to use the UMD GroupCode for RefWorks.
For directions on how to move references from UMD Databases and Library Catalog to your RefWorks account see:
For First Time Users:
Go to RefWorks and create an account.
Click "sign up for an individual account." Create a user name and password (not your UMD password). For the email field, only enter your @d.umn.edu address. Reply to the confirmation email and you'll be registered. Once you have an account, you can access RefWorks as long as you go through the the library website.
