NOTE: We will transition to Zotero soon after the end of the spring 2017 semester. RefWorks will be available to use throughout the summer and 2017 fall semester, during which time current RefWorks users will be encouraged to transition to Zotero. Our library staff will be able to help with the transition.
RefWorks is a web-based bibliography management and citation tool. Import references from databases, library catalogs, generic web sites, and more. It converts to hundreds of citation formats quickly and easily.
Zotero is a free, open source browser app that collects, manages, cites, and shares your research sources. It lives right in your web browser, and has a similar design to the iTunes library.
The Departments at Willamette University use a variety of citation style guides. This guide links to examples of in-text citations (within the paper) and bibliography/reference lists (at the end of the paper) of the most commonly used citation styles at Willamette. Printed style guides are in the Citation Style Guide Collection by the reference desk in the Hatfield Library.
