The Dal Libraries has signed a final contract with RefWorks.
Our final year under the contract will come to an end on April 20, 2020. There are a number of useful and free alternatives available, including Mendeley and Zotero. Find more information about these options on the Citation Management subject guide.
Dwindling usage of RefWorks is one of the main factors driving this decision. We will provide assistance to RefWorks users who want to move their content from RefWorks to the service of their choice.

What RefWorks can do:
- Import references from databases using Import Filters or text files.
- Interact with MS Word to create formatted citations and bibliography in your paper. (Use One Line/Cite View for very portable papers, or Write-N-Cite 4 if you always write on the same computer.)
- Format your reference list in one of dozens of formats like APA or MLA, etc.
When writing research papers you enter into an academic dialogue. The importance of understanding the responsibilities the academic community places on you as a writer cannot be understated.
