May is Almost Over -- Don't Lose Your Research Citations

Posted: 5/23/16 9:05 AM

After May 31, 2016, RefWorks accounts will no longer be available.   The University Library is replacing RefWorks with Zotero, a free bibliographic citation management tool.

Refworks citations can be transferred to Zotero by following the instructions found at, or please make an appointment with your personal librarian if you prefer.

This guide explains how to download Zotero to your computer (the librarians recommend using Firefox for all the Zotero features) and also illustrates how to add new citations into your Zotero account.

Note: librarians recommend faculty, staff, and students create a free Zotero account in order to use Zotero on multiple computers.

Please contact Vicki Young at if you have any questions.
