Using New RefWorks Part 1: Getting Started

Oakland University provides faculty, staff, and students access to RefWorks accounts. RefWorks is a citation management tool that allows users to "collect, manage, organize, and cite your research as well as collaborate with friends and colleagues by sharing collections" of resources (RefWorks, 2016).

Getting Started - Creating a New RefWorks Account:
Whether you've used RefWorks before or not, you need to create an account in the new RefWorks system. To create an account:
  1. Visit https://refworks.proquest.com/signup/email/ and enter your OU email address.
  2. Fill out your information and check your OU email for a message from RefWorks with a link to complete the registration process.
  3. Click on the link provided and you'll get access to your new RefWorks account, where you can start to save, share, and use resources for your research.

For more information, check out this guide on using the new RefWorks.
