The Countdown is on! RefWorks to be phased out this August

RefWorks, McMaster’s citation management tool, is being phased out and all users are reminded to migrate their references before it’s too late.

As of August 15, 2015, McMaster faculty, students and staff will no longer have access to their RefWorks accounts.*

To help ease this transition, McMaster University Library has created a list of citation management alternatives. Users are encouraged to begin the process of exploring their options and migrating their references from RefWorks into another software tool.

Users also have the option of purchasing an individual subscription to RefWorks.

For more information contact Ines Perkovic, McMaster’s RefWorks coordinator.

*McMaster’s RefWorks license was negotiated as part of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) consortia. Earlier this year, OCUL announced that its members had opted not to renew this product, resulting in the phase-out of RefWorks at a number of universities across the province.
