Legacy RefWorks Ends December 2017

For the past year two versions of RefWorks have been available: Legacy RefWorks and (new) RefWorks.

Legacy RefWorks is scheduled to disappear at the end of 2017. Please start using the (new) RefWorks platform by then.

Your to do list should include:

  • Migrate your information from Legacy RefWorks into RefWorks.
  • Finish up any documents you started with Legacy RefWorks. You won't be able to complete them in RefWorks.
  • Contact your librarian or with questions.

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is an online citation manager that helps you keep track of citations to books, articles and other documents. RefWorks can also create properly formatted bibliographies, and insert citations into documents. You can login with your JHED information to use it while you are associated with JHU. It is free to all JHU users, web-based, and requires no special download.
