RefWorks is a Web-based bibliography and database manager that allows you to create your own personal database of bibliographic citations by importing references from text files or online databases. You can store citations in several folders to track multiple projects. RefWorks will format your citations in your chosen style, including MLA, APA, and numerous other scholarly styles. You can also download "Write N Cite," a Microsoft Word utility that will assist you in using your references while writing papers even as it keeps track of your footnotes and bibliography. After clicking on the RefWorks link above, be prepared to "Sign Up for an Individual Account" at no charge. RefWorks does not sell, rent or lease such information to third parties.
