GU-Q: RefWorks

RefWorks

RefWorks is a web-based software* that captures, stores and organizes references for books, articles, web pages, and other sources. It then automatically converts these references into a properly formatted bibliography or works cited in the citation style of your choice, including APA, Chicago, and MLA. It can be used to:

  1. Store references (both those imported from online catalogs and databases or those created from scratch)
  2. Create bibliographies or works cited.
  3. Insert in-text references, footnotes, or endnotes into documents created in Word or other text editors

Many items from the Georgetown library catalog can be directly exported to RefWorks.

  • Search as normal using our library catalog or OneSearch.
  • To import a title into RefWorks, click on the Add to RefWorks link on the righthand side of the page.
  • You will be redirected to the RefWorks log in page; this citation will be marked "last imported". 

*Important Note:  Firefox and Chrome appear to interface more reliably with RefWorks.
