Skills Team Workshops: Using RefWorks to manage your references

Using RefWorks to manage your references

About this workshop

Workshop description

Referencing your work can be quite difficult, but if you use dedicated software such as RefWorks, this can take all the hard work of referencing away. RefWorks is an online bibliographic management tool designed to help students easily gather, manage and store references, as well as generate citations and reference lists. This workshop will introduce participants to the tool and will enable them to start creating their first reference list.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Create a library of references
  • Organise your references into folders
  • Choose the correct output style
  • Cite your references and generate a reference list in Microsoft Word

Who this workshop is for

This workshop is useful for students and researchers of any level who are looking to use RefWorks for their bibliographic management but is particularly suitable for undergraduate level. Bibliographic management is a ‘must’ for any extended piece of academic writing including dissertations and theses.


This workshop is run by an Academic & Library Specialist from the Brynmor Jones Library Skills Team.
