Bibliographic Management Software

For assistance with using either EndNote or Refworks please contact the Library Manager. Training sessions can be arranged as well.

The Tisch Library Reference Librarians have created a useful Citing Sources Research Guide that includes Refworks and Endnote tips and FAQs.


EndNote is a bibliographic software management tool that allows you to search bibliographic databases and retrieve references, creating your own database. In addition, EndNote is reference database software that allows you store, manage and search for bibliographic references in your private database using the results to create a bibliography of cited works automatically.

RefWorks is web-based bibliographic management software that allows users to import references from online databases and create their own personal databases. The references can be used in writing papers and automatically format in the paper and bibliography in seconds. As a web-based product, RefWorks is available to users across various platforms. RefWorks differs from Endnote in that your database of citations is stored on a web server; you do not have to install software but you do need access to the Internet. You can export from and import to Endnote if necessary. There is no cost for using RefWorks; access for Tufts authorized users is a service provided by Tufts libraries. Log into Refworks.
