RefWorks 3 (formerly Flow)

How to use RefWorks 3 to save, format, and manage citations.


The Library is canceling its subscription to RefWorks effective June 30, 2017. After that date, students, faculty, staff and alumni will not be able to use RefWorks through the library’s subscription.

We no longer recommend the creation of new RefWorks accounts. If you already have a RefWorks account, see the Migrate from RefWorks page for advice on how to save your RefWorks citations for use in other applications. If you would like assistance, or if you have any questions, please contact a librarian at

RefWorks, or RefWorks 3?

This guide is for RefWorks 3 (formerly known as Flow).
