Please be reminded that UNB Libraries has made the decision to cancel our subscription to RefWorks in favour of supporting freely available citation management alternatives like Zotero and Mendeley. Our license with RefWorks will come to an end on August 31st of this year. Any RefWorks content that has not been transferred from RefWorks into a new software will be irretrievably lost on that date.
We encourage current RefWorks users to continue using citation management software, and recommend transitioning to one of the popular online tools: Zotero or Mendeley. For more information about how these tools compare to one another, and to RefWorks, see the Comparison of Citation Management Software Programs table on the library website.
UNB Libraries staff and resources are available to support you as you make the transition from RefWorks to a free online option. In addition to video support for Zotero and Mendeley, and individual in-person assistance, we will be hosting two workshops at the Harriet Irving Library on UNB Fredericton Campus.
Session 1 – June 28th at 2:00 PM (Learning Lab, Room 112)
Session 2 – July 20th at 10:00 AM (Learning Lab, Room 112)
A workshop will also be hosted on the Saint John Campus in the HWK Commons.
SJ Session – July 13th at 9:30 AM (Commons Room #G16)
We recognize the inconvenience that cancelling RefWorks will cause current users, and offer our apologies. If you require support for your content migration and none of the sessions above work with your schedule, please do not hesitate to contact us directly for individual support. In Fredericton, you can book an appointment with Richelle Witherspoon (phone: 453-4602 | email: firstname.lastname@example.org ); in Saint John, requests can be directed to Diane Buhay (phone: 648-5712 | email: email@example.com).
We are ready and willing to assist you as you make this transition.
