NEW RefWorks

Staff and Students now have the option to use NEW RefWorks which has a more modern look and feel and enhanced functionality e.g. import PDFs

IMPORTANT - Upgrade to New RefWorks

Legacy RefWorks is being retired in 2023 and will not be available after 30th June. If you are not already using new RefWorks ( ask you to upgrade before end of June to avoid last minute problems.

- In Legacy RefWorks click the 'Upgrade to the latest version of RefWorks' button which is at top right of screen  (recommended method).

- Alternatively, create an account for New RefWorks and Import your references from Legacy (your folder structure will be retained and PDFs etc. imported).

Note: if you use Write-N-Cite to create in-text citations from RefWorks in your Word document it is best to complete your document before upgrading. If you do need to do the upgrade before your document is complete, take a backup copy before working on it with the new version. See Upgrade a Write-N-Cite document and contact the Library for guidance.

See more guidance on Upgrading from Legacy to New RefWorks and also how to Upgrade a Write-N-Cite document.
