Q. How can I create a RefWorks account?


An individual account is required to use RefWorks.

  1. Go to the Mercyhurst University RefWorks page by clicking here.
  2. Click on Sign Up for a New Account.
  3. Enter the required information, including a Login Name and Password.*
  4. Click on Create Account.

RefWorks is free for Mercyhurst students, faculty, and staff and is provided for you by the Mercyhurst Libraries.

*Please note that Creating a New Account will give you an independent, personal account. While you may choose to use your Mercyhurst login and password for your RefWorks account please be aware that some login names may already be in use. For example, "jsmith" may be in use by another RefWorks user in which case you will need to further personalize your login (e.g. "jsmith10" or "jsmith_25").
