Importing Databases by Title into Refworks

RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic management tool. With this tool you can collect and organize references on topics for papers or research; electronically transfer references from databases to your files; create bibliographies or lists of works cited using the citation format of your choice; create in-text references or footnotes as you write papers; and create your personal searchable database of citations.

Once you have signed up, you may access your RefWorks account (or use legacy version) any time you have a connection to the Kathryn A. Martin Library website. There are a few situations in which this does not work in which case you will need to use the UMD GroupCode for RefWorks.

For First Time Users

First create an account at RefWorks.

Click on "Sign Up for a new Account." Choose a user name and password (not your UMD password). Fill in the requested information, being sure to use your UMD email address. You will receive an email confirmation. Once you have set up your account you can access it as long as you go through the the library website.
