Graduating and leaving UNMC? Take RefWorks with you!

If you are graduating and will soon be leaving UNMC, you can take your RefWorks account with you through the RefWorks Alumni Program. The new account includes access to RefWorks, RefShare, and Write-n-Cite. The Alumni Program accounts do not include “Check for UNMC full-text” buttons, so if you will be staying at UNMC, you should not switch to this account.

To get an Alumni account:

  1. Contact Cindy Schmidt (cmschmidt@unmc.edu, 402-559-7077 or toll free at 1-866-800-5209) to request instructions for creating your Alumni Program account.
  2. Please provide information about your dates of attendance and program affiliation.
  3. Cindy will need to verify this information before she can send you instructions for establishing an account.

For more information, see the RefWorks Tips, Tricks, and Guides page.

Citations & bibliographies made easier: RefWorks training

Create a searchable database from your MEDLINE, CINAHL, and PsycINFO search results. Use that database to insert citations and create bibliographies in your papers in just minutes. Reformat your paper for submission to a new journal in seconds. Learn how to do all this and more by attending our hands-on, RefWorks Basic Training Class. Those who attend will create their own RefWorks accounts (for free) through the McGoogan Library’s RefWorks site license. This class is open to all UNMC faculty, staff, and students and UNMC volunteer faculty. The RefWorks Basic Training Class will be held in the 8th floor Wilson Training room and will be offered on:

 

  • Friday, February 25 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, March 30 from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 26 from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

 

 

To register for these classes, e-mail Cindy Schmidt at cmschmidt@unmc.edu with your preference.

If you cannot attend these classes, please contact Cindy to schedule a one-on-one or group consultation. Tutorials are also available on the RefWorks site.
