About RefWorks

RefWorks is a web-based citation manager provided by the Libraries for all U of M- Twin Cities' faculty, students, and staff that allows you to:

  • Create your own databases of citations by importing references from MNCAT and other databases or entering them using a template. Databases can be for you alone or a group;
  • Upload and attach one or more files (PDF, image, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.) to individual records in your account. There is a 5MB limit per attachment;
  • Automatically generate bibliographies in all major styles (MLA, APA, Turabian, Chicago, etc.) in seconds, and then exporting them as several document types (Word, RTF, HTML, etc.); and
  • Continue your access to RefWorks after you graduate through the RefWorks Alumni Program, free to U of M alumni and retired faculty.
