Are you working on a research or scholarly practice project and need to manage multiple references and resources? As you search for articles and scholarly resources, you may find it challenging to stay organized and keep track of your research. We can help you with that! The library provides free access to a tool that can help you manage and keep track of your citations! RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and citation management program that is available to Regis students, faculty and staff. RefWorks allows you to:  

  • Create a personal database of citations and related documents. Not only can you build your own list of citations, you can also upload PDFs and documents so that your research is all in one place.   

  • Use folders and tags to organize your resources by themes or topics. By creating your own (or using the database supplied) tags, you can easily remember major concepts in an article at a glance.  

  • Import references from online databases, Google Scholar and other sources. As you search for articles in the databases, you can export the citation directly into your RefWorks account, which saves both the bibliographic information (i.e., the title, author, journal title/volume/issue, etc.) and a permalink to the article. You can also add a “Save to RefWorks” link to your browser, which will help you save information as you browse the web.  

  • Automatically format in-text citations and bibliographies. Always make sure to check your citation format and make edits and corrections as needed. Even the most sophisticated citation management program can make mistakes!  

Check out our RefWorks research guide for more information about how to use the program. Make sure to use your Regis credentials when creating an account!
