RefWorks migration to EasyBib/EndNote

CSB/SJU has had a subscription to RefWorks for several years. During this time there have been a proliferation of other software packages, many of them free, which are used to create bibliographies. We have decided to cancel our RefWorks subscription and offer instead two alternatives: EndNote and EasyBib. They are both available now, and RefWorks will continue to be available through June 30th.

You can migrate your references from RefWorks to either EndNote or EasyBib. Here are the instructions. See a librarian if you need additional help.

RefWorks to EasyBib

RefWorks to EndNote
http://www.csbsju.edu/Documents/Libraries/EndNote.pdf

Here are some links that will be helpful:

RefWorks (through June 30):
http://www.refworks.com/refworks

EasyBib (available now):

EndNote Web (available now):
http://www.myendnoteweb.com

If you have need of assistance with migrating any of your data out before we lose access to RefWorks (June 30), or if you would like to learn more about using EndNote or EasyBib, please contact a librarian by stopping by the reference desk or setting up an Individual Research Appointment (http://www.csbsju.edu/Libraries/Library-Site-Index/Ask-a-Librarian.htm)!
