What is New RefWorks?


There are now two versions of RefWorks available to Texas A&M patrons, New RefWorks and RefWorks Legacy (Old RefWorks). New RefWorks is the latest version of ProQuest RefWorks. It has  the same features as the RefWorks Legacy (Old RefWorks)* There are also some new features included:

  • New interface
  • Drag and drop citation capability
  • Enhanced sharing features
  • Read and take notes on pdfs through the RefWorks interface

One big difference between New and Legacy is that you will only have one account in New. You will be able to maintain and add to your Legacy accounts as well as to your New account. You will also be able to transfer records from your Legacy account to your New account.

*New RefWorks no longer supports codes for manually adding citations to Microsoft Word documents.
