RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic management program that allows you to create your own personal database of references. You can automatically import references from a search performed in an online database, catalog, or enter references manually.
Login is simple, whether you are on or off campus! Register for a new RefWorks account using your USFSP email address and create a password. If you already have a Legacy account, you have the option of migrating that account to the new version.
