What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a tool for publishing and managing citations, bibliographies, and references. Hinds students and faculty can create accounts to keep track of the citations and resources they find during research. RefWorks also provides additional tools to add references directly from webpages, and to insert and edit citations in Word, Google Docs, and Hangul.

RefWorks is great for keeping track of citations, but not always perfect at generating them. Be sure to use the other pages in this guide to check that all citations are done correctly.
