RefWorks Bibliographic & Citation Management Software
RefWorks is a web-based tool that assists in managing citations, creating bibliographies, and importing references from online databases.
Use a citation generator when you need to create a bibliography. These user-friendly, easy-to-use tools create individual citations that must be copied and pasted into a Word document. Be sure to proofread your citations for accuracy, completeness, and correct formatting. Although citation generators can be quite reliable, they are not error proof.
