BGSU continues to make critical decisions to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus in the best interests of our campus community based upon state and federal guidance. Jerome Library is closed, but staff are working remotely to assist you.
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).
A new version of RefWorks was released in 2016, requiring all users to create a new account (on the new platform) and migrate their references from the old system. If you have not done this, please follow the instructions in the "Migrating from legacy RefWorks to the new RefWorks" box below.
If you would like training or assistance with RefWorks, please contact Amy Fry.
The "more" tab on this LibGuide includes lots of helpful links to guides and tutorials!
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 users who signed up for RefWorks prior to 2016 and have not migrated:
Create an account in the new RefWorks using one of the methods described to the left. Then click on the plus sign in the new RefWorks interface and choose the "Import references" option. The system will then walk you through an import of everything saved to your old RefWorks account.
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.
