ProQuest RefWorks 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 7th. 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 Citation Manager plugin, which allows you automatically generate references from your RefWorks folder while you write in Word. You can download this for your own computer from the Microsoft app store. It is already installed on library computers.

Where can I get help with RefWorks?

We run occasional online webinars, covering the main features of RefWorks and how to get started. See our Library Live website for upcoming dates, or to view past recorded webinars.

This RefWorks workbook (PDF) 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.

A full online user guide and a series of video guides are available, produced by ProQuest.

The librarians can also advise on using RefWorks. Email with any queries, or book an online appointment.
