Learn how to use RefWorks, RefShare, RefGrabIT, and Write-N-Cite

New RefWorks - Getting Started





To Log in: Click on REFWORKS

1. Click on "Create Account" at the bottom of the pop-up box. 

2. Enter your FIT email address.

3. Fill out the account form.

Note:  When creating a password for your RefWorks account do not use the same password as your TRACKS account.

2. Once you have completed the registration form, you can log into RefWorks using your username and newly created password.


If you are using the legacy version of RefWorks you will need to migrate your data to the new RefWorks by December 31, 2018, when it will no longer be supported. To migrate your data to the new RefWorks:

1. Sign in to the legacy version

2. Select the link at the top of the screen (immediately above the RefWorks logo), "Move to the new version of RefWorks from ProQuest." and follow the instructions there.

Once the migration is complete, you’ll want to choose the ProQuest RefWorks option the next time you sign in as well as when exporting citations from library databases. You will have the option to import references from a legacy RefWorks account, both during the new account set-up as well as anytime from within the new account. Importing references into the new platform will not affect your current (legacy) RefWorks account.

Exporting to RefWorks from a Database?

When you are exporting a citation from a database, you will see two options (like below).  If you are new to RefWorks, use the blue ProQuest RefWorks button.  If you have the legacy version use orange RefWorks button. Note, however, this option will not be available after December 2018.
