American Heritage: Using RefWorks for citations

Library Resources for American Heritage

Generating Citations / Creating a Bibliography using RefWorks

You can easily input (and format) journal articles, books, websites, and other resources for your paper with RefWorks!

RefWorks is a Web-based bibliography and database manager that helps you collect and organize citations and access them from any computer with a Web connection.

RefWorks will even take your list and generate a bibliography of references, using APA, MLA, or any other format  you select.

When gathering records from other databases, look for instructions or a red-and-white RefWorks tab for how to directly export your records to RefWorks.


To create your own RefWorks account (its free for all BYU students), click on the RefWork link above or go the Library homepage and enter "RefWorks" in the search bar. It should be the first highlighted result.
