RefWorks in Summon Power Search

What is RefWorks?

  • RefWorks is a new way to collect, manage and organize research papers and documents.  You can read annotate, organize, and cite your research as well as collaborate with friends and colleagues by sharing collections.


  • RefWorks’ drag and drop capability along with smart document recognition makes it easy and fast to upload documents and bibliographic metadata into your library and the Save to RefWorks feature allows you to capture research from websites with the click of a button.


  • From simple bibliographies to papers formatted with in-text citations or footnotes, RefWorks handles it all.


How Do I Access RefWorks?

  • RefWorks is now integrated with Summon Power Search!  Now you can search in Summon while at the same time saving citations and creating bibliographies, all on the same platform.
