RefWorks, McMaster’s citation management tool, is being phased out and all users are reminded to migrate their references before it’s too late.

As of August 15, 2015, McMaster faculty, students and staff will no longer have access to their RefWorks accounts.*

To help ease this transition, McMaster University Library has created a list of citation management alternatives. Users are encouraged to begin the process of exploring their options and migrating their references from RefWorks into another software tool.

Users also have the option of purchasing an individual subscription to RefWorks.

For more information contact Ines Perkovic, McMaster’s RefWorks coordinator.

*McMaster’s RefWorks license was negotiated as part of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) consortia. Earlier this year, OCUL announced that its members had opted not to renew this product, resulting in the phase-out of RefWorks at a number of universities across the province.

McMaster’s RefWorks license was negotiated as part of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) consortia. Earlier this year, OCUL announced that its members had opted not to renew this product, affecting a number of universities across the province.
“We understand that this decision will significantly impact our RefWorks users,” says Anne Pottier, Associate University Librarian. “To help ease this transition, McMaster University Library has identified a variety of citation tools that should meet the needs of most of our students, faculty and staff. We invite current users to explore the options and find the tool that works best for them.”
