RefWorks Transition

RefWorks Logo New

A New Version of RefWorks is Available!
The upgraded RefWorks Citation management tool is now available.

We recommend that new users of RefWorks choose the upgraded RefWorks option.  For users who are currently working on document where you are using RefWorks Write-N-Cite toolbar in Word, we recommend waiting to make this transition.  All other users can consider if they want to move to the new platform now or in the next few months.  Viewing the Benefits and FAQ information may help in this decision.  We expect that in summer 2018, all users will want to migrate to the new RefWorks.

Training & Support:
Librarians teach workshops on the new RefWorks interface to faculty and students who are new to this citation management tool; however, they will continue to answer questions related to legacy RefWorks.
