Refworks: Home


RefWorks is an online reference management tool which can be used by City students, staff and alumni.  It allows you keep track of all your research, helps create bibliographies and lets you share references with others. A new version of RefWorks (known as 'ProQuest RefWorks') has recently been launched. It is anticipated that the existing RefWorks (now referred to as 'Legacy RefWorks') will continue to run alongside the new version until January 2018.

New to RefWorks? If you have never used RefWorks before, or you have an existing Legacy RefWorks account which you no longer use, you may wish to start using the new ProQuest RefWorks now, so you can use its new features.

Already using RefWorks with your documents? It is currently not possible to change Word documents over to new ProQuest RefWorks, if you have already inserted references from Legacy RefWorks. For that reason, you may wish to use Legacy RefWorks until you have finished these documents.
