Please note that Scholars Portal hosting of RefWorks was discontinued as of August 15, 2015.

TMU’s RefWorks license was negotiated as part of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) consortia. In 2014, OCUL announced that it had opted not to renew this product, affecting a number of universities across the province, including TMU.

Citation management tools have evolved, and there are new, powerful tools available. Toronto Metropolitan University Library has identified a variety of citation tools that should meet the needs of our students, faculty and staff. We invite current users to explore the options and find the tool that works best for them.

To assist in the transition, Toronto Metropolitan University Library has created a list of these citation management alternatives and is encouraging users to begin the process of exporting their references from RefWorks into another software tool.

Learn more about how to migrate your references and citations from RefWorks to Mendeley, Zotero or Endnote Web.

Users also have the option of purchasing an individual subscription to RefWorks.
