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.
