What happens when I graduate?

Once you graduate from Concordia you will no longer have access to your RefWorks account. Some options to consider:

  • Move your account to another insitution that subscribes to RefWorks. To do this, you can backup your Concordia RefWorks account and restore it at your new institution. More info can be found here.
  • Move your references to other bibliographic management software (e.g. Endnote, Zotero, etc.). More info can be found here.

What is RefMobile?

RefMobile (http://refworks.scholarsportal.info/mobile) gives you access to your references in RefWorks from your smartphone or mobile device. To access RefMobile, you will require:

  • Your 'Log-in Name'
  • Your 'Password'
  • The 'Group Code'

Click here (and select "Forgot your log-in?") in order to have these 3 things emailed to you.
