Organize & Cite - RefWorks

Do you need assistance with citing articles for your papers and research assignments?  RefWorks is an online reference tool that stores the citations and full text of your sources and automatically formats them into citations and bibliographies.

All WCU students and faculty have a subscription to RefWorks – Unlimited document storage – Unlimited sharing inside & outside the institution – Includes email tech support and training. 

  1. Click on the link above, or find it on the Library's A-Z Database List
  2. Click “Sign up” 
  3. Fill in your WCU email address (or personal email address only if you are on campus)
  4. Go to your email and click link in your email 

Learn how to use RefWorks by watching 8 tutorial videos (about 35 minutes total) on the RefWorks YouTube channel.

(Note that “New RefWorks” or “RefWorks 3” is different from the previous version, called "Legacy RefWorks", so don’t watch tutorial videos made before 2017.)

RefWorks can also be used within your word processor by downloading and installing free software or a software add-in. Instructions for choosing the right version for your word processor are in the Tools menu under your name when you are signed into RefWorks.

(Note for West Coast University students and faculty: if you use MS Word for Windows, Mac or online (versions after 2016), you will be instructed to download the RefWorks Citation Manager plug-in from "Get Add-Ins" under the Insert menu in MS Word. If you see a message, "Office Store not available", then click the words "ADMIN MANAGED" to the upper-left of the message to find the icon for RefWorks Citation Manager.)
