RefWorksLegacy RefWorks is scheduled to be discontinued in September of 2017.  If you're still using Legacy RefWorks, now is the time to migrate to New RefWorks.

What is New RefWorks?

ProQuest has launched a new and improved version of RefWorks that makes it easier than ever to manage and organize your research, as well as cite your sources and create bibliographies. Some of New RefWorks improvements include:

  • Organize, read, and annotate everything you collect and import (including uploading and annotating PDFs)
  • Enhanced sharing and collaboration features
  • Improved tools for citing sources and creating bibliographies
  • Streamlined workflows that make research management and paper-writing easy

It's important to note that until Legacy RefWorks is discontinued, you may have accounts in both the new and the legacy version of RefWorks   The accounts are completely separate from each other.

How do I migrate to New RefWorks?

Proquest has a page explaining how to migrate your account.  They also have a short video (below) that shows how to migrate to New RefWorks.
