At St George’s, we have an institutional subscription to RefWorks (available to St George’s staff and students only). There are now two versions of RefWorks available:
RefWorks: the new RefWorks, launched in 2016
Legacy RefWorks: until October 2019, this was the only version available at St George’s.
The two versions are working alongside together, however it will not be possible to create new Legacy accounts from October 2019.
St George’s Library now runs training sessions on the new version of RefWorks but will continue to support those using Legacy RefWorks.
Accessing RefWorks or Legacy RefWorks
If you are entirely new to RefWorks, visit: RefWorks.
If you would like to continue using Legacy RefWorks, and you already have an account, visit: Legacy RefWorks.
Moving from Legacy to New RefWorks?
If you are using Legacy RefWorks and are interested in moving to the new version of RefWorks, please be aware that it is currently not possible to edit documents in new RefWorks if they have previously been used in Legacy RefWorks.
We strongly recommend that those using Legacy RefWorks at St George’s delay moving to the new version of RefWorks until any documents, such as dissertations or theses, you are working on are complete. More information about migrating from Legacy RefWorks can be found on our RefWorks LibGuide.
Getting more help with RefWorks
Use our RefWorks LibGuide to get started with using the software, or come along to one of our training sessions for hands-on support.
Other reference management tools
There are a number of other popular and/or freely available tools including Zotero, Mendeley or Endnote Basic. Licenses are also available for individual purchase for the full version of EndNote.
