Import Update Regarding RefWorks

Tufts University no longer subscribes to RefWorks, a web-based citation management tool.  This decision was based on declining usage, access to comparable tools, and cost-benefit. Access to RefWorks ceased at the end of December 2019. 
This guide contains information to assist RefWorks users with migrating their references to other citation management tools. To determine which citation management tools are available to you based on your status at Tufts, please see the list below:
