WMU Libraries Nonrenewal of RefWorks

Due to rising costs and relatively low usage, the WMU Libraries have decided not to renew the subscription to RefWorks when it expires June 30, 2017. This guide gives information on this transition and assistance for current users to migrate their data to an alternative system. Users have 18 months past this date to contact ProQuest, who can extract the data in RIS format.

We are recommending either Mendeley or Zotero as excellent options for current users of RefWorks. There may be other options users may consider as well. Use the links below to get to more information on each system, tutorials, videos, and migration information. Directions are available on each page for exporting database from RefWorks into one of these recommended systems. 


The WMU Libraries guide  Mendeley @ WMU gives detailed information and assistance using Mendeley. 


The WMU Libraries Zotero guide gives detailed information ans assistance using Zotero.
