The Library regularly monitors the usage and costs of each of our resources. For several semesters, RefWorks has come under scrutiny due to its high cost and low demand. Therefore, we have decided that to be good stewards of our resources, we will not renew it this year.

We have studied many citation managers and concluded that several of them, including EasyBib, Mendeley, Zotero, BibMe, provide functionality comparable to RefWorks at no cost. These resources also offer additional features if individual subscribers wish to enhance their subscription.

Please take action as soon as practical to move all your articles, citations, bibliographic data, and information that you want to save into another file or tool. If you have any problems retrieving your data from RefWorks, please notify us and we will be glad to assist you. We recommend you use one of the free citation managers listed above.
