A new and improved RefWorks!

Did you have a RefWorks account last year?  RefWorks is an online management system for gathering information about the sources you use in your assignments (books, journal articles, websites etc), and for referencing your assignment in the required Referencing Style.  If this is new to you, don't worry!  We will have lots of information for you when you start your assignments...

But, if you had a RefWorks account last, please note there have been changes over the summer.  You have three options of how to proceed:

(1) You can continue to use Legacy RefWorks this year (although the provider is no longer developing it).  To do so, just login here:

(2) You can move the references in your Legacy RefWorks account to the new and improved Proquest RefWorks.  This is only necessary if there are references in your account that you wish to keep.  Login as normal and select the option to "Move to the Newest Version of RefWorks from Proquest".  Then follow the online instructions to create your new account.

(3) You can create a new account in Proquest RefWorks ( using your ITB email address and a password you create.  Please note, any existing accounts in Legacy RefWorks will remain but won't be updated.

Let us know if you have any questions at!
