If you use RefWorks, you may have noticed that the RefWorks interface has a new look: http://resources.library.ubc.ca/901. Our understanding is that most of the changes are cosmetic (intended to improve the interface) and do not affect the functionality.

To allow users some time to adjust, the old interface is still available until the end of the year, but is no longer the default when you log in to RefWorks. If you prefer to use the old interface for now, you can do so by logging into your RefWorks account and clicking on the “RefWorks Classic” link at the top. We recommend trying the new interface before the end of the year so you can get used to it before it is no longer available.

We are familiarizing ourselves with the new interface over the summer and will offer a workshop in the fall. In the meantime, take a look at the RefWorks 2.0 Quick Start Guide  to learn more about using the new interface.

Also, if you have any specific questions about the functionality of the new interface, please contact us.
