Existing Legacy Refworks Accounts

To move your references from the Legacy Refworks to the New Refworks, first create an account in the New Refworks (see above). Then login to Legacy Refworks and click on the link in the upper left corner. You will be prompted to login to the New Refworks and your references will populate in the new version.

Move to newest version of Refworks

During the transition
*Users are able to maintain both legacy & new RefWorks accounts in parallel.
**Migration from legacy to new can occur multiple times (new RefWorks will only import new references from legacy on subsequent imports) - however it is a one-way migration, meaning reference changes will not migrate back to legacy from new RefWorks
