Transition from RefWorks and Proquest RefWorks

In June 2019, UNH's site license to RefWorks and Proquest RefWorks will end and will not be renewed.

We have carefully reviewed the pros and cons of the library’s site license and have concluded that the high cost of the annual subscription can no longer be justified when there are other free or low cost citation management programs available that are as good or better than RefWorks and Proquest RefWorks. Other factors that went into this decision included the combination of a shrinking user group and lack of cross-platform support.

Current RefWorks and Proquest RefWorks users who would like to save their citations are advised to export them by July 1, 2019. 

We have created a guide to help users transition away from RefWorks and Proquest RefWorks. If you run into any difficulties, please do not hesitate to contact the Library for assistance.

Access to Both Platforms

There are currently two platforms for RefWorks:

If you have not created an account in Legacy RefWorks, create an account in Proquest RefWorks.

If you have an account in Legacy RefWorks but you DO NOT want to transfer your citations, there is no need to change.


If you have an account in Legacy RefWorks and you DO want to change platforms to Proquest RefWorks, use the following steps:

  1. Create an account in Proquest RefWorks.
  2. Select the + icon in the menu bar, and pull down Import References.
  3. Indicate that you want to Import references from RefWorks.
  4. Authorize Proquest RefWorks to import references. You may need to sign in to your Legacy RefWorks account to complete this step.
