What is New RefWorks?
Access to Legacy RefWorks will expire May 10th 2016. You must migrate to the New RefWorks before then.
New RefWorks is the upgraded version of the Legacy RefWorks citation managment service. You can read, annotate, organize, and cite your research as well as collaborate with friends and colleagues by sharing collections.
New RefWorks is tightly integrated with QuickSearch. Items you save to folders in QuickSearch are automatically added to your New RefWorks account once you login.
Workshops for Moving to the New RefWorks
