Due to low usage and new technology platforms, ASU Library will be ending its subscription to RefWorks, effective June 30, 2019.
The decision to transition away from RefWorks in favor of other citation managers is in line with our peer institutions and Arizona State University’s commitment to innovation and service excellence.
1. Choose a citation manager
Use the Citation Management Tools library guide to compare the three citation managers that ASU Library supports: EndNote, Mendeley and Zotero.
While certain academic fields may prefer one platform over another, all three citation managers are endorsed by ASU Library as effective, low-cost (or free) tools that offer a variety of benefits to their users.
2. Transfer your citations
Follow step-by-step directions to easily migrate your citations from RefWorks to another citation manager.
Send an email to RefWorks@asu.edu for assistance. Library staff will contact you to arrange a time to help you set up a new account, add your RefWorks data, and get comfortable adding new files and citations.
In addition, more drop-in sessions may be scheduled in 2019 at the different campuses. Check back here for updates!
