Citing & Writing

We've heard that for some students learning a citation style can be like learning a new language. We've got resources to help you.

RefWorks is a web-based citation manager. Using RefWorks, you can:

  • Import and store citations found in Library databases or other sources
  • Organize your references into folders
  • Create a reference list formatted in any citation style (APA, MLA, etc.)
  • Insert citations into the text as you write your paper
  • Share reference lists with classmates or other scholars

The first time you sign into RefWorks you may be prompted for the St. Kate's Group Code.
