RefWorks  Connect to RefWorks
Access: Internet-delivered database. There are three ways to connect:
  1. from a public computer in the University of Delaware Library
  2. from a University of Delaware campus connection in your dorm, lab, or office
  3. from an off-campus connection (University of Delaware ID required)

A Web-based bibliography and database manager that allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases. You can use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds.

When you use RefWorks in conjunction with a Library database, log on to your database while you are logged on to RefWorks (in another window). Remote users need proxied connections to the database as well as to RefWorks.

Personalization: Once you have connected to RefWorks and are at the RefWorks Welcome Screen, click on “Sign up for an Individual Account,” enter the appropriate information, and click on “Register.” You will receive an e-mail confirming your registration. Be sure to save a copy of this e-mail, because it contains the RefWorks Group Code that you may need later when you are working with RefWorks remotely via a proxied connection.
Notes: Internet Explorer 7 users may experience extreme slowness when using RefWorks, because of IE’s Phishing Filter. Microsoft has a downloadable patch.
Permitted Uses: See Terms of Use

See RefWorks @ the University of Delaware and RefWorks tutorials. RefWorks training webinars are also available.
