RefWorks is a bibliographic citation management tool. This guide provides help using RefWorks.

To create an account:  Go to the RefWorks login page, and click the "Create account" link. It's a subscription service, but there's no charge because you're covered under NYU's site license.

Note to long-time RefWorks users:  RefWorks was revamped last year and has a completely new, modern, mobile-friendly interface.

To migrate your references from the old version to the new, go to the old version and click the link at the top of the page above the RefWorks logo.
