RefWorks is the newest addition to our suite of tools and resources for our students and faculty at Touro. It’s easy to use and can save you oodles of time saving, organizing, and citing your research, like with its one-click bibliography generator. It’s a lifesaver on a laptop, but will it work on your mobile device?
