RefWorks Announcement

SJSU Library will be transitioning away from the RefWorks citation tool effective January 1, 2023.

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks Logo

Available to SJSU students, staff and faculty, RefWorks is a tool that can help you manage your book and article citations. It also automates the creation of References and Works Cited pages in the citation style of your choice — APA, MLA, Chicago, and more.


To use RefWorks, click the "Create account" link on the sign-in page. You will need your SJSU email address to start the process.
