RefWorks 2.0

Don’t pull your hair out!

RefWorks is a tool which makes it easier to create your reference lists (APA, MLA, etc) and create citations in the body of your paper itself. Last year RefWorks was upgraded to version 2.0.

A streamlined version of RefWorks classic, 2.0 makes all of the most important buttons — adding a reference, creating a bibliography, and creating a folder, visible and readily apparent on the main page of the screen. Adding a reference by hand is now a breeze, with the information on the screen reduced to the bare necessities to help novice users find their way around.

Just like RefWorks classic, you still have the option of exporting references from all the major databases (EBSCOhost, ProQuest, and more) with a single click of the mouse.

Creating your reference list and works cited page has never been THIS easy — until now! Give RefWorks 2.0 a try today.

The newly added Quick Guide to RefWorks 2.0 has been added to the handouts page.

Workshops: ProQuest, RefWorks, and more!
