RefWorks is a web based service used to create a personal database of bibliographic citations through importing the citations from other online databases or typing them in manually. Citations can be automatically formatted for bibliographies and footnotes. You can also search within your own personal database.
RefWorks is available to any current student, staff or faculty at Dartmouth College.
You can import searching results from most of the article indexes directly into RefWorks. You can import search results from online library catalogs too. Look for RefWorks under "Result Sets" in the catalog's online Help section.
Note: Write down the Institutional number for Dartmouth when you register for your account. You can get into RefWorks from any computer on campus or any computer from off-campus. To get in from off-campus, you need your Institutional code.
