Trinity's access to Refworks will end on June 30, 2019. If you need to continue to use references currently in your Refworks library, export them into a different citation manager. The Coates Library recommends and supports Zotero to replace Refworks. Please see our guide on Zotero for more information.

RefWorks is a web-based reference manager. Trinity University users can click here to create a RefWorks account and get started.

RefWorks is a good choice for your first reference manager. Just sign in to RefWorks in one browser tab while doing your research in other tabs. Many library databases, search engines, and websites have the option to export citation information to RefWorks.
