RefWorks is a web-based citation manager that helps you keep track of your research, organize citations, and create bibliographies.
Access to RefWorks is available to all USC students, faculty and staff at no cost. A current USC email address is needed to create the account. Alumni can also access RefWorks after graduation if an account was created as a student.
RefWorks released a new version in 2016. To create an account, see below.

Write-n-Cite is a Microsoft Word plugin that allows you to quickly insert and edit citations from your RefWorks account, adding them to your bibliography as you go. Write-n-Cite for Word is available for both Mac and Windows (32-bit and 64-bit).

USC Libraries will be supporting the older, legacy version of RefWorks until December 2017.
Starting January 2018, we will only be supporting the new version of RefWorks. We highly suggest moving all your references to the new version soon. It’s simple!
Follow these instructions to move your references to the new version.
