Here you will find all the tools you need to cite your sources properly, information on avoiding plagarism, and a link to RefWorks(below this box), which allows you to create a personalized bibliographic database. These tools will help you present your research in a professional format.
RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and database manager that allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases. You can use these references in writing your papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography when you are ready.
You must create a personal account from a computer on the UMass Dartmouth campus network or login via the Library's proxy server if you are off-campus, but after that, the program can be used from any Internet connected computer.
