The Leddy Library has provided access to the RefWorks citation management system through a consortial arrangement with the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL). This contract will no longer be renewed by OCUL.

As such, all access to RefWorks via the Leddy Library will cease. We urge users of RefWorks to export their references by August, 2015 because after this time it will no longer be possible to do so.

You may move your references to another citation management system such as Zotero which works with internet browsers, Firefox (http://leddy.uwindsor.ca/refworks-zotero-firefox) and Chrome (http://leddy.uwindsor.ca/refworks-zotero-chrome. The Leddy Library will be holding workshops on using Zotero in the fall.

If you're not sure what software you would like to use to manage you citations, but you don't want to lose your references you can and export your citations and keep the file for later use.
