RefWorks is a web-based tool (comparable to and compatible with EndNote) that builds a personal database of citations found through research by importing the citations from online resources including: the online library system (OneSearch), online databases to which the Baylor Libraries subscribe, web pages, and RSS Feeds. Citations can be collected from online resources or added manually, organized in folders, incorporated into research papers, and automatically formatted for endnotes or footnotes or bibliographies using specified styles (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.).
RefWorks uses a rich database structure which gives users the ability to add detailed notes and other information to individual citations. Because this informaiton is stored in a database, a researcher's RefWorks account becomes her personal research database, which can be searched for needed information.
Additionally, thru the use of RefShare, all or part of a RefWorks account can be shared with others -- including individuals not affiliated with Baylor University -- with whom a researcher may be collaborating.
