RefWorks

Saint Michael's College will be phasing out RefWorks during academic year 2015-2016.  Beginning June 1, 2016, RefWorks will no longer be provided by the Library.  After researching citation management software, we found that  EasyBib was already being used by our students and has a more user-friendly interface.  EasyBib Pro is now available to the Saint Michael's College community and provides many more features and citation styles than the free version of EasyBib.  To access the full features of EasyBib Pro, set up or log in to (if you already have an account) your EasyBib Pro account while connected to SMC wifi or while using an SMC lab or library computer.

Do you have citations in RefWorks that you want to move to EasyBibLearn how to import RefWorks citations into EasyBib.

About RefWorks:

RefWorks allows you to import references from online databases, organize your references into folders, and then create bibliographies.  You can select from a variety of style forms (eg APA, MLA).  RefWorks is free to the SMC community and available from any computer with Internet access.
