Welcome to ProQuest RefWorks at Brooklyn College

What is ProQuest RefWorks?

Welcome to the new ProQuest RefWorks!

Collect, manage and organize research papers and documents.  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 document recognition makes it easy and fast to upload documents and bibliographic metadata into your library. The "Save to RefWorks" feature for your browser toolbar 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, ProQuest RefWorks handles it all.
