Please note that Scholars Portal hosting of RefWorks was discontinued as of August 15, 2015.
Ryerson’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 Ryerson.
Citation management tools have evolved, and there are new, powerful tools available. Ryerson 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, Ryerson 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.
Users also have the option of purchasing an individual subscription to RefWorks.
