How do I use RefWorks?


RefWorks is the premier citation management tool of ProQuest's ExLibris Knowledge Center. To use this tool, you will have to create an account. 

To create a RefWorks account: 

  1. Visit the library homepage.
  2. Click on the Databases A to Z icon in the Library Resources box. 
  3. Select RefWorks from the alphabetical list. 
  4. Once you are directed to the login page, select "Create Account." Make sure to use your Chamberlain email address to set up an account.
  5. After you fill out the required information, you should receive a confirmation email with a link. Click on the link to activate your account. 

See the attached PDF for step-by-step instructions with screenshots on how to create a RefWorks account.

Once you create an account, you will be able to do the following:

  • build and manage citations
  • collect, manage, and organize full-text documents
  • collaborate by sharing collections 
  • import citations from EBSCO, ProQuest and OVID and perform an RIS import from PubMed
