RefWorks changes and news

  • The new PubMed interface simplifies exports to RefWorks! Check out the RefWorks libguide (PDF) to find out how.
  • Students, before you graduate, ask about free RefWorks access for Alumni! RefWorks is developing a new program for the alumni of institutions that license RefWorks. This program is supposed to provide free, continued RefWorks access after graduation. It’s not yet clear how this program will be administered. If you are a student and find RefWorks valuable, please ask us about this program before you graduate. You can contact Cindy Schmidt, at cmschmidt@unmc.edu or 559-7077, or the Library’s reference desk at askus@unmc.edu 559-6221. The program details may not be available until May.
  • New RefWorks interface to be available in 2010. RefWorks technical support is planning to release a redesigned RefWorks interface in late 2009. You will not be forced to switch to the new interface immediately. We’re told that it will be available as an option for quite awhile before it becomes the default interface.

As always, please contact the library to arrange for a one-on-one or group RefWorks training session.
