About RefWorks

RefWorks is supported by the University Library for all undergraduate and post-graduate course work students and staff of the University.

RefWorks is a web based bibliographic management, writing and collaboration tool where you can create and organise your own personal database of references and citations and share these with colleagues. You can add citations while you write a paper and then use RefWorks to format the paper in the referencing style you choose, adding both in-text references and a bibliography.


Proquest RefWorks is undergoing an upgrade.  The University of Notre Dame Australia will provide access and support for both the old “Legacy” RefWorks as well as the “new” RefWorks during 2017. 

All new users for RefWorks should create an account using the new RefWorks platform; Legacy RefWorks users will be able to choose which they use.

If you would like to learn how to use new RefWorks or learn how to switch from Legacy to new, please see the Library Classes calendar available through the Library Homepage.
