RefWorks User Name Changes
Just a quick update, some of our RefWorks users may receive an email from RefWorks-COS Support Services [firstname.lastname@example.org] requesting them to update their RefWorks username this week. (I did!)
This is legitimate - RefWorks is moving everyone to unique user names in order to simplify the login process. They suggest using your email as a new username, but that is not required. So if you’re like me, and use something like librarygrrrl42* as a username, well, go right ahead.
Any questions or issues about RefWorks please call Molly Knapp at 568-6100 or email email@example.com
Full text of RefWorks email follows.

Dear RefWorks User,
We are asking RefWorks users – like you – who have the same login name as a RefWorks user at a different institution to select a new login name.
This change will enable us to streamline access for you and others by eliminating Group Codes during the log in process.
Changing your login name takes only a few seconds:
Log in to RefWorks
Click on the “Update Profile Link” in the upper right corner Choose a new log-in name (we recommend using your email address)
Thanks for your help!
