What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a web-based citation management tool that is available to JIBC students, faculty, and staff. RefWorks lets you ...
  • Download, gather, and store references from the web, databases, and library resources automatically
  • Format citations and bibliographies in seconds
  • Connect to your RefWorks account anywhere there's web access
  • Share your citations with other RefWorks users


RefWorks is hosted on a U.S. server

  • The first time you create or access your account, you will be asked to consent to the ProQuest privacy policy
