RefWorks Training and Support

RefWorks is a web-based citation management program that enables you to:

  • download, gather, and store references from databases and library catalogues automatically
  • format citations and bibliographies in seconds
  • connect to your RefWorks account anywhere there's web access
  • share your citations with other RefWorks users

UBC Library maintains a site license to RefWorks. It is freely available to UBC students, faculty, staff, and alumni. You can create a RefWorks account and learn more about how to use RefWorks here:

NOTICE: Systematic downloading or harvesting articles, citations, metadata (e.g. using citation managers such as EndNote or Zotero) is strictly prohibited. (You must contact lib-license@lists.ubc.ca. Permission is required or a Text and Data Mining Package should be purchased.)

RefWorks Workshops

The Research Commons team offers monthly 2-hour workshops to get you started with RefWorks. In these hands-on workshops, you'll learn how to import and organize your research citations and format your bibliographies in the citation style of your choice. You'll leave the workshops with a basic database of research citations and the skills to build on it.

How are we doing? Let us know!
