Transitioning to Zotero

Wilson Library’s subscription to RefWorks will expire on June 30th, 2019 and will not be renewed.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause current RefWorks users.

If you have citations currently stored in RefWorks that you would like to keep, please export them and move them to another citation manager before June 30th, 2019. Instructions on how to export your stored citations from RefWorks are included in the RefWorks Transition Guide located at:
