RefWorks 2 (Legacy)

Legacy vs. New RefWorks

Currently, RefWorks is available using two platforms, RefWorks 2 (Legacy) and RefWorks 3 (New). This guide will focus on RefWorks 2 (Legacy). Legacy users may migrate at their own pace as the legacy version currently has no set retirement date. For more information about the transition visit the Transitioning to the New RefWorks page. 

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is web-based software which allows you to create a database of references, manipulate, organize and share the database, and use those references when writing papers. It is licensed by the Health Sciences Library for use by the New York Medical College community.


To access RefWorks from off-campus, you will have to authenticate first.  Click on the Login link on the library homepage and then enter your NYMC email address and password.

There are links to both Legacy and New RefWorks listed under the Quick Links* sidebar on the homepage.
