Reminder: Cornell’s Refworks subscription ending December 31, 2015

As you make the transition remember, EndNote is available for all current CALS faculty, undergraduate students, graduate students, and staff. Find out more at:

This is a reminder that the Cornell Library’s subscription to RefWorks expires on December 31, 2015, and will not be renewed; after that date, Cornell RefWorks users will no longer be able to access their accounts.    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 really no longer be justified when there are other free or low cost citation management programs available that are as good or better than RefWorks.

We are contacting you now to help you prepare for the transition and make alternative citation management arrangements before the deadline.  As part of this preparation process, we’ve set up an FAQ page at  to help answer your questions and guide you through the process of moving your Refworks citations to another program.  We will continue to support and provide help with Endnote, Zotero and Mendeley, as well as offering open workshops during the summer and fall semesters—more info on the FAQ page.

In addition, feel free to contact the Cornell Library’s citation management support group via this link:  We are available to answer questions via email or in person via consultations.

Best regards,

The Cornell Library Citation Management Team
