RefWorks Citation Management Tool

Minnesota State Mankato students, faculty and staff can use RefWorks to create bibliographies and in text citations for assignments and research projects, organize citations to create personalized literature databases, and export citations from databases


Due to low use, a rising subscription cost, and the number of freely available citation and reference management tools, the library will cancel RefWorks when our current subscription ends December 31, 2019. Any citations not migrated out of RefWorks will be inaccessible after this date. Information about migrating your data from RefWorks to Mendeley or Zotero can be found on this guide.

What is RefWorks?

  • Create bibliographies for research papers, theses, and alternate plan papers
