RefWorks gives you a place online to save pdfs and citations you find while doing research. It also has tools to format papers and bibliographies in a wide variety of citation styles (MLA, APA, and more).
In 2016, all users must migrate to the new version of RefWorks. In order to migrate, all users must create an account in the new version. Current RefWorks users can then import references from their existing (legacy) RefWorks accounts into the new RefWorks. New and old accounts are not linked.

If you would like training or assistance with RefWorks, please contact Linda Rich to set up a time to meet.
If you want to sign up/migrate using your BGSU email address:
*If you already have a RefWorks 3 account, you will be asked if you want to log in to your existing account
If you want to sign up/migrate using a non-BGSU email address (gmail, yahoo, etc.):
For existing RefWorks users only:
After you have created an account in the new RefWorks (remember, ALL USERS MUST CREATE a new RefWorks account), you can easily import citations from any existing RefWorks account(s).
You can import references from multiple accounts and you can repeat this action as many times as you need to in order to import all your references before you stop using the old RefWorks.
If you are actively formatting a document using Write N Cite, you should keep using RefWorks 2 until you have finished formatting that document.
You can still create your account in RefWorks 3 and start importing citations into it at any time, but Write N Cite documents are only compatible with the version of RefWorks you were using when you created them.
