18 months until RefWorks is cancelled

The Library at Queen’s will cancel its subscription to RefWorks at the end of December 2020.

At that stage, all Queen’s University Belfast students and staff will lose access to their RefWorks accounts in their current form. This will inevitably impact some HSC staff and Healthcare Library members.

Ahead of the cancellation, you should transfer your RefWorks references to another tool if you wish to continue using them. EndNote is available to QUB users, while Mendeley is a popular, free alternative.

More details on transferring references, including information on New (ProQuest) RefWorks, will be provided in due course. Please keep an eye on this blog and library social media for further announcements.
