RefWorks is a reference management system that supports citation management, research collaboration, in-text citation, and the creation of bibliographies. It is a cloud-based application that is free for UIC students, faculty, and staff.
RefWorks allows you to:
Organize your resources in projects and folders
Create formatted reference lists and annotated bibliographies in a variety of citation styles
Import citations directly from library databases as well as Google Scholar
Access your sources directly within Microsoft Word
Share citations and source lists
To create in-text citations you'll need either the RCM plugin or Write-n-Cite, depending on your operating system and version of Word.
