RefWorks Login Update for Legacy Users

RefWorks is an online citation management, writing, and collaboration system that is offered free of charge by University of Houston Libraries to all UH students, staff, and faculty. RefWorks helps users organize and manage the references found during the research process as well as cite those references.

Legacy RefWorks will be deactivated in June 2023 by the vendor. UH Libraries plans to disable account creation in the legacy RefWorks platform after the fall 2022 semester. With RefWorks providing the most advanced reference management experience, all users will be using the current RefWorks platform.

UH users who are already signed up with the current RefWorks platform don’t need to take any action. Those who are still using the legacy Refworks platform, which allows the use of a non-UH email to log in, will need to change your personal email to your UH email before the end of fall 2022. Log in to your account, click your name, then click ‘Settings.’ There will be a field to update the email address to your UH email.

To learn more about how to use RefWorks, please refer to the citation management guide.
