RefWorks is an online software tool that enables you to collect, organize, and share citations. You can also create bibliographies in the format of your choice.

Samuel Merritt University students who want to use RefWorks must create an account here. Be sure to use your SMU email address when creating your account. You can continue to use this account after you graduate by signing into the account and changing your status to alumni.

New RefWorks is the latest version of RefWorks. It's a work in progress but is very usable in its current state. You can sign in to the new RefWorks here.


If you'd like to continue using the old ("legacy") version, you can sign into that here. You can also upgrade from the old version to the new version there.
