Frequently Asked Questions

Does the library offer workshops on RefWorks?

Yes. Librarians offer workshops a few times a semester or by request. They are also available for one-on-one appointments. See the Workshop Schedule or schedule an appointment here.

What if I already have a legacy RefWorks account?

If you have an existing Legacy RefWorks account and would like to transfer to the current version of RefWorks, sign in to your account and click   "Upgrade to the latest RefWorks version" (located at the top of the screen).

If you'd like to use the current RefWorks but aren't ready to transfer your citations, you can have two separate accounts. You can transfer your citations when you're ready.

Can I keep my account after I graduate?

Yes. To keep your account after graduation, simply e-mail us with a new e-mail address so that your account doesn't expire when your UIC e-mail does. 

What if I don't want to try this current version of RefWorks?

If you’re not ready to make the switch, don’t worry. You can keep using the legacy version.
