RefWorks

Important information to read before creating a Refworks account

Information stored in the citation manager Refworks is no longer hosted in Canada.  Before its move from Canadian servers, all subscribers were given the option to transfer to Refworks, Proquest U.S.A.  It is the understanding of the Mount Library that while there are other citation management tools available, none offer Canadian hosting.  In September 2014, the Mount Library moved its RefWorks accounts to servers hosted in the United States.  Please contact the Mount Library (library@msvu.ca) if you have any questions regarding RefWorks or any other citation management tool.
