Question and Answer

How do I transition from RefWorks to another citation management tool?

The University of Arizona Libraries subscription to RefWorks will end on March 31, 2021. All users who want to keep citations and PDFs stored in RefWorks must transfer them to an alternate citation manager. After March 31, UA users’ RefWorks accounts will be permanently inaccessible. 

Transition Overview
