Library's Refworks Citation Manager to Be Discontinued

Published March 23, 2018

Campus Community Update #304

Because of budgetary constraints, the RefWorks citation manager database will be discontinued as of June 30, 2018.

We have carefully reviewed the pros and cons of the library’s site license and have concluded that the high cost of the annual subscription can no longer be justified when there are other free or low cost citation management programs available that are as good or better than RefWorks.

If you currently have a RefWorks account/database and wish to continue to maintain your citations, you must migrate your citations to a different citation manager by June 30.

A few of the more popular, free citation managers are:

Options on where to move your RefWorks data.
Title Instructions
EndNote Web Migration instructions for EndNote Web
Mendeley Migration instructions for Mendeley
Zotero Migration instructions for Zotero

There are many other citation managers also available to choose from. A current list is found here.

Continue to RefWorks
