10 Things Every First Year Student Should Know

Manage and create citation lists the easy way!

Linderman Rotunda SkyliteOne of the first things you should do as new student is to set up a RefWorks account! That way, as you discover resources, you can quickly and easily manage those resources so that they are available for you when you need to create a reference or citation list in your paper or project. Refworks is the tool to do just that! RefWorks is a web-based personal database and bibliography service that is available to you as a Lehigh student. This system is not only online so it is accessible anywhere, but it allows you to store your citations in folders for various projects and will format your citations based on hundreds of different styles, such as MLA, APA, and Chicago.

Refworks is also integrated with our online databases, so when you find that resource, with a click of a button or two, you can pull that citation into your RefWorks account for future use. Additionally, RefWorks is also integrated with Word, so it will make adding footnotes and creating bibliographies a snap! View a quick video on Refworks to see it in action!
