RefWorks to Zotero: Migration Drop-In Session

On March 4, 2019, Concordia Library announced that it is changing our reference management tool from RefWorks to Zotero, effective April 30, 2020. We’re making the change because we think Zotero offers a much better user experience with the same functionality. The best part is that you can easily migrate your references from RefWorks to Zotero, we’ll even help you! Our next Migration Drop-In Session will be held on Tuesday, February 18 in LB 205. Feel free to drop in anytime between 1 and 3pm for assistance migrating your account!

Date Time Location Register
Tuesday, February 18 1 to 3 p.m. Webster Library, LB-205 Drop-in
