What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a bibliographic management tool. It can help your manage your references by allowing you to store and organise them. It can also create a reference list/bibliography for you in a variety of formats including RGU Harvard and RGU Vancouver, the two styles approved for RGU assignments. 

It can even help you to format an entire essay or dissertation to include in-text citations and a reference list!
