Citations: Move an Existing RefWorks Account to the New RefWorks

Learn what a citation is, how to read a citation and how to create APA, ASA, MLA, and Chicago style citations.


Due to low use, a rising subscription cost, and the number of freely available citation and reference management tools, the library will cancel RefWorks when our current subscription ends December 31, 2019. Any citations not migrated out of RefWorks will be inaccessible after this date. Information about migrating your data from RefWorks to Mendeley or Zotero can be found on this guide.
