Login to RefWorks ProQuest (new interface):

The new interface became available during spring 2016.

Legacy RefWorks interface (old interface):

IMPORTANT:  The Legacy (old) RefWorks interface is available until sometime in later 2017, but is slated to be retired in early 2018. 

Please plan on migrating your account to the new interface well before then, preferably when you are NOT in the middle of writing a paper!  If you need help with the migration process, please request a research consultation.

RefWorks, Endnote Web, and some of the free software sites have the following basic, common features:

  • Web-based (that is, once you’ve set up an individual account, you can use the service from any internet connection)
  • Online storage space for your citations
  • Importing of citations from major database vendors such as ProQuest or Ebsco either directly or indirectly (more information)
  • Importing of citations from MARQCAT, our online catalog
  • Direct importing of citations from MARQCATplus, our online discovery catalog.
  • Ability to cite references in papers and to create citations and bibliographies in various style formats (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.)


  • Direct importing/exporting: means that while you’re in a database such as ProQuest, you can send selected records/references directly to your citation management account (RefWorks or Endnote Web).
  • Indirect importing/exporting: means that when you’re in a database such as the Cambridge Companions, you must first save selected records into a file (usually a text, or .txt, file), and then from within the citation management system, you import that file.
  • Importing vs. exporting: both words describe the basic action of getting citations from a database into the citation software without needing to re-key them.  The two names just reflect your starting point!  For example:
  1. Starting from inside a database, where it's usually called 'exporting'
  2. Starting from inside the citation management software, where it's called 'importing'
