Until August 2016 both the new and "legacy" versions of RefWorks will be available.  By August 15, all legacy accounts will need to be transferred to new accounts, a very easy process outlined below.

1.  You can register for a new account by going to:   At this link, you need to be on campus and use your institutional email address.

2.  If you are unable to create an account on campus, email Tori Rossetti at

You can transfer your RefWorks library from your legacy account  Legacy accounts will be available only for an indefinite time so it is recommended that you import your references into your new account.

Sign into your new account, click on the + sign, and from the drop down box, choose "import references" which then will prompt you to open your legacy account to transfer your references to your new account.
