University Libraries Announcement Regarding RefWorks

University Libraries regret to announce the University's subscription to RefWorks ( will not be renewed for fiscal year 2009/10. Access to the Web-based citation and bibliography management system will expire on June 30, 2009. Although the Libraries were excited to introduce this new service in 2008/09, RefWorks has been used by only 3% of the Southern Miss community. With apologies to individuals using RefWorks, the low level of usage does not warrant continued support of this service in this period of budget reductions.

Current users will be sent an e-mail message containing instructions for exporting citations from RefWorks. Users are advised to export their references before June 30, 2009, to avoid any loss of data. University Libraries will continue to offer technical assistance to users through the remainder of the subscription period. Technical assistance is also available directly from RefWorks.

Please direct questions or comments concerning the cancellation of this service to Tisha Zelner, Head of Information Services, at or 601.266.6170.
