*Attention Current RefWorks Users*
Just a reminder that the Library’s subscription which provides free access to the citation management tool RefWorks will end June 30, 2016, and you will need to move any content that you wish to keep to a new citation management tool before this date. Never fear, we can help! There are several different free and fee-based options to explore, and the Library is providing online guides and in-person workshops to help you make the switch to a new tool that is right for you.
- Which tool should I use?
The Citation Management Overview online guide ( http://guides.library.illinois.edu/citationmgmtoverview ) provides links to several comparisons of citation management tool options (EndNote, Mendeley, Zotero, and more!), and user guides for these other tools. Explore these options to find one that fits with your needs and workstyle. If you’d rather have someone explain it to you, the Library’s Savvy Researcher workshops can help. Consult the Spring 2016 Calendar, looking under the Information Management category for “Choosing a Citation Manager” sessions, as well as focused sessions for a more in-depth look at EndNote, Mendeley, and Zotero.
- I’ve picked a tool, how do I move my stuff?
The Refworks Transition Guide ( http://guides.library.illinois.edu/refworkstransitionUIUC ) includes step-by-step instructions for transferring your Refworks citations to EndNote, Mendeley, Zotero, and CiteULike.
- I need more help!
