How do I access RefWorks?

I would like to know the login details/ ID to enter their site.

You create your own login when you register with Refworks, but it is different if you register with RefWorks off campus than if you do so on campus.  Both go through links on the Library's Web page. For off campus: Start at the library's Web page
Under Quick links, select Databases A-Z, then P-R
Under RefWorks, click the "here" in "click here first"
This will ask you to login with your university login and then you will be given the Group Code, which you will need to access RefWorks from off campus. At the RefWorks login screen, select "sign up for an individual account"  You may have to type in the Group Code during the registration.
Fill in the information requested. NOTE the login you select is NOT the same as your university login.   When you get the "Congratulations" screen, you have an account. Note at the top right there is a link to "tutorial."  There are actually tutorials to cover every phase of using RefWorks and I recommend taking them. Registering on campus is the same, except you do not need the Group Code.
