We are discontinuing RefWorks

After careful consideration, The UAlberta Library has decided to discontinue the campus-wide institutional subscription to the RefWorks reference management service.

Our RefWorks subscription expires on October 1, 2021. You will need to back up your account data or transition to other reference management software before October 1st.

We have created the RefWorks Transition Guide to walk you through how to move your references out of RefWorks and into other reference management software.
