This weekend, ProQuest has scheduled a Maintenance Window that will affect all RefWorks services for a few hours.
The Maintenance Window is scheduled to start at 11pm CST, Saturday, May 5th.
The work should take about 5 hours, ending at 4:00 AM CST, Sunday, May 6th.
While this work takes place, RefWorks services including RefMobile, RefAware, and Write-N-Cite will be unavailable. In their place, we will post a message that will be updated with any changes to the Maintenance Window schedule. There will be a short period of up to one hour when even this message will not be available.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
Just a quick update, some of our RefWorks users may receive an email from RefWorks-COS Support Services [email@example.com] 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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)
RefWorks, our free Web-based bibliography and database manager which can format a paper and bibliography for you, has some improvements scheduled for the near future:
December 31st, 2011: “Classic” interface goes away. (This only matters if you are an old-school power user.)
January 2012: Group Code no longer needed to login to RefWorks off campus. (It will, however, still be needed to create a RefWorks account off campus.) FAQ
Spring 2012: Updated version of Write-n-Cite will be available.
The new version of Write-N-Cite will run on Word for Windows 2007 & 2010 as well as Word for Mac 2008 & 2011. You’ll get the same features on either platform, and sharing documents between computers is as easy as opening a file. More.
For questions or training contact Molly Knapp. RefWorks classes will resume in January.
Two Minute tips is a series on our blog where we bring you short video tutorials on various tools and resources in the library.
Today we’ll look at Write-n-Cite. It’s a Microsoft Word Add-in from RefWorks (our bibliographic manager) that inserts citations as you write a paper, then formats the whole thing into a bibliography for you. Check it out!
RefWorks your web-based reference manager is getting a new look. If you have already created Refworks personal databases, please convert to the RefWorks 2.0 as soon as possible and take advantage of the cleaner, more intuitive interface. Not familiar with Refworks? Create a new log-in (free) and begin managing your references with RefWorks 2.0.
RefWorks 2.0 allows you to manage your references anywhere you have access to the Internet!
• Search PubMed (within RefWorks)
• Directly import your selected PubMed citations
• Store your references in folders (including attaching the full-text of the article)
• Share your references with your collaborators
• Add your references as you type a paper (write-n-cite)
• Create and format bibliographies in the citation style you need
Try the RefWorks 2.0 tutorial to get a glimpse of what you can do to get organized.
For more information about RefWorks 2.0 and other super cool ways to gather your references including searching SCOPUS and directly exporting citations to your RefWorks account contact Kathy Kerdolff.
To switch between old and new versions, simply use the links at the top right of the screen. RefWorks 1.0 will be available through December 2011.
If you have 15 minutes then you have time to get a quick introduction to a free information management tool called RefWorks.
RefWorks in 15 minutes will be offered online January 6, 12, 18 & 27th. Register here.

Some things RefWorks can do:
Format a paper or bibliography for you in the citation style you need.
Instantly add references as you type a paper in MS Word
Search PubMed (or another database) from within RefWorks
Share references with other people
