RefWorks Legacy

RefWorks an online citation management tool for Tulane faculty, staff, students and alumni.  

RefWorks is in transition. The legacy version is still available and will be until at least 2018.  Users should consider a number of factors before deciding when to transition from Legacy RefWorks to New RefWorks. This is a one-way migration, meaning reference changes will not migrate back to legacy from new RefWorks.

Some functionality may be missing new New RefWorks. -- You may set up a New Refworks account and use both the Legacy and New versions at the same time.  Documents created with Write-n-Cite/ProQuest for Word using Legacy RefWorks can't be modified with New RefWorks, and vice-versa.   If you are starting a project that will continue beyond early 2018, consider using EndNote basic, New RefWorks or another citation management option.
