The NEW RefWorks




      Login to Legacy RefWorks

RefWorks is in the midst of an upgrade.

Current Users: If you have been a long time RefWorks user, continue using the Legacy RefWorks platform until you are ready to migrate to the new RefWorks platform. The Legacy RefWorks will remain an option until Summer 2017. The new interface has a complete new look and functionality, and maintains the high level of reference management that you are accustomed to. Note: the library's tutorials and information will reflect the new RefWorks platform. 

New Users: Start using the NEW RefWorks interface today!
