RefWorks Transition

Transition from RefWorks

LNDL's subscription to RefWorks will end on December 31, 2020. After that date, students, faculty, and staff will not have access to RefWorks.

The Library will now provide in-depth support for Zotero, which is a free citation management application with similar features and functions to RefWorks.

Zotero allows you to:

  • collect, manage, and cite sources
  • attach PDFs, notes, and images to your citations
  • organize your citations into collections for different projects
  • insert citations into Word documents
  • create bibliographies

Since it is not a library subscription, you will still have access to your Zotero account after leaving Loyola or Notre Dame.

IMPORTANT: If you have sources in RefWorks that you would like to continue using, you will need to export these items from RefWorks and import them into Zotero. Click through the tabs on the left to learn how to do this.
