ProQuest RefWorks (formerly Flow) is a cloud-based tool that integrates with Summon. It allows you to save your Summon search results in a permanent, cloud-based folder.

RefWorks can be used to automatically create references in various styles, including APA 6th. You can also share collections of references with other RefWorks users.

How to access RefWorks

RefWorks integrates with Summon. You can access it using the link at the top right of your Summon search results (see screenshot).

Or, you can log into RefWorks directly at

You will need to register for a free account to use RefWorks. RefWorks is free to use so long as you sign up with your University email address.

RefWorks includes a Write-N-Cite plugin, which allows you automatically generate references from your RefWorks folder while you write in Word. You can download this for your own computer by going to the Tools section within your RefWorks account. It is also available on library computers.

Where can I get help with RefWorks?

A quickstart guide is available, along with a full online user guide and a series of video guides, produced by ProQuest.

The librarians can also advise on using RefWorks: simply ask at the help desk any time during staffed hours. You do not need an appointment.

This RefWorks workbook is used in training workshops, organised on request from lecturers. You may find it useful to go through if you are unable to attend a workshop.
