RefWorks departs: get help migrating to a new citation manager

September 3, 2018

The University of Michigan’s subscription to RefWorks will expire at the end of December 2018 and will not be renewed. After that date, U-M RefWorks users will no longer be able to access their accounts.

This decision was made based on a steady decline in RefWorks usage paired with the availability of free or low-costs options that function as well as or better than Refworks. Additionally, RefWorks is introducing a new platform that would have required all of our users to migrate their account and learn a new tool as the legacy product is retired.

Please consult the transition website for more information about adopting another tool, scheduling a consultation for one-on-one or group assistance, and available workshops and office hours. You may also contact with questions or to schedule a consultation. Users of the Taubman Health Sciences Library can email
