Ref Works

RefWorks is a web-based citation management system offered free to U of M students and faculty. It offers you a convenient and time-saving method of saving and formatting information on your research. It imports this information directly from many of the databases licensed by the U of M Libraries.

RefWorks Library Reseach Guide (University of Memphis Libraries Research Guide)

Register for a RefWorks Workshop (At the University of Memphis Libraries every Wednesday)

Meet with a research librarian to learn about RefWorks! We'll show you how to sign up, add research you already have, attach full-text articles from library databases, quickly create citations and bibliographies/reference pages in the style you need (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.), and more!

Citation Help in Databases


In Catalog Classic (books), click on Cite This (right side) from inside the record.  The citation will appear in the current versions of APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA, and Turabian.


In databases (journal articles) such as those owned by EBSCO, after locating the article, click on Cite (in the list on the right). The citation appears in MLA, APA, and Chicago/Turabian formats.
