Bibliographic Management Tool


RefWorks is the bibliographic management tool (citation manager) supported by the Library. It is web-based, thus allowing you to access your references from any web connected device, with no need to install any specific software.

RefWorks will help you save time and maximize your efforts in collecting and track your sources.

You will be able to:

  • create a personal database of references collected from different kind of sources, such as databases, web, and the like
  • organize, annotate, and tag your references
  • automatically build and format a bibliography in a wide range of citation styles
  • add references directly to your paper as you write

How to get access to RefWorks?

Follow this link to sign up and access RefWorks: as a first step, you will need to create a personal account. To create it, you will need to enter your institutional e-mail (Bocconi/SDA).
