Log Into "New" RefWorks

You can create a new account using your UNLV email at the link above.  

Log Into "Legacy" RefWorks 

You can still use your "Legacy" RefWorks account, but it will be phased, so you may want to move your account to the New RefWorks. Using both old and New RefWorks within one document in Write-n-Cite can cause problems, so finish your projects before making the switch.

How To Transfer Citations From Legacy To New Account

If you had an account in the old version of RefWorks you will need to transition to the new version.  Login to your RefWorks account from the main login page and then click the link in the far upper left corner of your account screen that reads, "Move to the newest version of RefWorks from ProQuest" to transfer all of your citations.

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a web-based bibliographic software package that enables you to:

  • Organize your research
  • Create a bibliography in a variety of citation styles, including APA, MLA and Chicago
  • Import references from many data sources
  • Create bibliographies in different document formats (Word, RTF, HTML, etc.)
  • Include citations while you write your paper
