RefWorks downtime Saturday 21 December 2019

ExLibris is moving the RefWorks data center to a new server on Friday 21 December 2019.

We are expecting a down time of up to 10 hours for both legacy RefWorks and (new) RefWorks from 06.00am. This has been communicated to all users through the in-app announcement feature in November and December.


From September 2017 a new version of RefWorks is available to students and staff which includes a number of new features such as PDF import and improved support for Word 2016 for Mac. If you are a new student in 2017 we advise you to use new RefWorks.

If you already have an existing (legacy) RefWorks account you can still continue to use it, but if you’d like to move to the new version you can find out how to transfer your references, see Moving from legacy to new RefWorks.
