Refworks: what is that anyway?

Refworks is a tool that helps you manage citations for your research and writing.  It allows you to create bibliographies for your papers easily in the appropriate citation style for your assignment.  If you need help using this tool, there are multiple ways to receive help: the reference desk librarians, the refworks support email, online tutorials and webinars.  You can find links to all of this from the Refworks page on the library’s website.
