Scholarship as Conversation
Communities of scholars, researchers, or professionals engage in sustained discourse with new insights and discoveries occurring over time as a result of varied perspectives and interpretations.
Information Creation as a Process
Information in any format is produced to convey a message and is shared via a selected delivery method. The iterative processes of researching, creating, revising, and disseminating information vary, and the resulting product reflects these differences.

RefWorks is a research management tool you can use to create bibliographies, format footnotes, and organize information that you import from the library's databases and other online sources. Footnotes and bibliographies created with RefWorks are only as good as the information you import. You will still need to edit some references. For help with that, refer to the library's guide to citing sources.
I'm new to RefWorks
We recommend using the New RefWorks. It has a modern design, plus many new enhancements.
I already have a Legacy RefWorks account
Legacy RefWorks and new RefWorks can be used in tandem. You can create an account in the New RefWorks and experiment with the new version; your legacy account will be unaffected. Or you can continue using the legacy version, which will be available until late 2017.
