RefWorks is changing – you need to take action!

RefWorks has been updated; its new features make it super easy to use. Those who already are using RefWorks will need to migrate to the new format in order to retain citations you have saved previously. This is easy to do, and we’ve created a Moodle course to help! Enroll in the Moodle course by scrolling down to “Departments and other groups,” then “Tredway Library,” then “RefWorks.” (You can also go directly to this Moodle page by clicking “RefWorks” on the library homepage, under Research Tools.) Access to the old version of RefWorks may end sometime soon after January 1, 2017, so please make this change as soon as possible.

For those who have never used RefWorks before, this is a great opportunity to start. Now, in addition to saving citations and integrating the citation style of your choice into a paper as you write it, you will more easily be able to save the full text of your articles in your RefWorks account. Sending citations to RefWorks is also much easier; store the “Save to RefWorks” button in the Bookmarks bar of your browser, and one click will send information about whatever you’re viewing in your browser to your RefWorks account, regardless of the database or catalog (or website!) you are looking at. It couldn’t be simpler.
