Library staff is available to provide research support specific to coursework inside or outside of the classroom. Librarians can offer information on searching library resources, provide guidance on using bibliographic managers, or discuss ways to locate materials unavailable at a BU Library. Please contact the library at firstname.lastname@example.org to make any arrangements.
If you created a RefWorks account before July 2016, you may be running what is considered “Legacy RefWorks.” Legacy RefWorks users log in using the URL www.refworks.com instead of the newer https://refworks.proquest.com/ to access citations.
ProQuest has announced they are ending support sometime in the future for the legacy RefWorks. We suggest that you consider moving to the newer RefWorks platform. You will be able to migrate your citations to the new platform.
Visit https://refworks.proquest.com/ and click on “Create an account.” Enter your BU email address and create an account.
Following this, click on the plus sign in the new RefWorks interface and choose the "Import references" option. The system will then walk you through an import of everything saved to your old RefWorks account.
