RefWorks can be used to create and organize a personalized database of bibliographic references imported from text files and online databases, or inputted by hand.
It formats both references and manuscript into various writing styles, such as MLA, APA, Chicago, Turabian, IEEE, and more.
As a UTEP student you can create a RefWorks account that will be active even after you graduate.

(According to The Bluebook- a System of Uniform Citation)
Note 1: The short citation for legislative materials omits information about number of congress and date, e.g. H.R. 22. A short cite can only be used if a full citation can be found in one of the preceeding 5 footnotes (Rule 13.7(c)).
Note 2: In the text of an article abbreviations for legislative materials are not used, e.g. a senate bill would be referred to as as Senate Bill 223.
