RefWorks Bibliography Tool

Refworks Registration and Login

  • Available to all current W&M students, staff, and faculty. 

  • Also, as long as William & Mary subscribes to RefWorks, students who created RefWorks accounts retain those accounts as alumni, and other W&M alumni can obtain accounts through the Alumni Association's my1693 program:  RefWorks for Alumni.

With Refworks you can:

  • capture citations from our databases and catalogs.
  • format those citations for your research papers' bibliographies -- and format them in MLA, Chicago, APA, ASA, and hundreds of other citation styles.
  • process parenthetical/in-text notes, footnotes, and endnotes quickly using RefWorks' Write-N-Cite feature.
  • attach copies of documents, such as journal articles, to your saved citations.
  • share your citations and saved documents with others.

New RefWorks iteration:

W&M Libraries currently use the legacy edition of RefWorks.  A new iteration of RefWorks is in development, with plans for a summer 2018 release.  We’ll post updates and provide plenty of lead time before migrating to the new iteration.
