What is RefWorks?
RefWorks is an online citation manager that lets you save and organize your database and library catalogue searches. With RefWorks, you can format your bibliography in APA, MLA, AMA, and over 200 other styles. You can also manage and organize your citations, share your references with others, and most importantly, save time.
RefWorks is freely available to all Queen's students, faculty, alumni and staff as an online service provided by Queen's University Library and Ontario Scholars Portal.

Multiple RefWorks Accounts
As long as you are a Queen's student, employee, alumni or retiree, you can register for as many RefWorks accounts as you need. For example, you will want to create a personal account for your own assignments and/or research, but you also might want to create other accounts for group projects which you are involved in. Access to these group accounts can be shared among other members of the specific group.
