The Dal Libraries has signed a final contract with RefWorks, a web-based citation manager that allows one to compile, edit and format bibliographies by importing references directly from online databases.
Our final year under the contract will come to an end on April 20, 2020. There are a number of useful and free alternatives available, Zotero for instance, and we’re seeing many users moving to those options on their own. Some faculties at Dal also subscribe to EndNote.
Dwindling usage of RefWorks is one of the main factors driving this decision. In the next month, we’ll begin the process of notifying faculty and students. We will provide assistance to RefWorks users who want to move their content from RefWorks to the service of their choice.
