You will need to register for an account the first time you use RefWorks. You will be prompted to register the first time you login from the RefWorks Guide on the Library website.

You can create and access your account very simply using your University login. At Anglia Ruskin, RefWorks accounts are accessed using your University login rather than setting up an individual personal account with separate username and password.

The short registration form requires the following information: 

  • Your full name
  • Your email address.  Please use your Anglia Ruskin University email address as we will occasionally need to contact you with important news about your account.  RefWorks will not send you unsolicited emails.
  • Your broad subject area of interest.  This is so that RefWorks can understand how their service is being used.
  • You will be asked to re-type a computer generated word.

Do not click on the option to 'Link an existing RefWorks account to this Shibboleth account'.  You should only use this if you already have a personal RefWorks account not connected to Anglia Ruskin University that you want to link to your University login.
