Update: RefWorks Group Code

RefWorks logoAs of December 9th, 2013 RefWorks users will no longer be required to enter a group code when logging in to their RefWorks account(s) off-campus or outside of their institutional IP range.  This improvement comes at the request of many RefWorks users and administrators and serves to simplify the RefWorks login process.

New users that do not yet have a RefWorks account must be on-campus or accessing RefWorks through the proxy server when initially creating an account. This is so RefWorks can attach the user to a subscription.  Once the new user has set up their account they will be able to log in from any location, with or without proxy authentication, using only the login name and password.

There will still be several cases where the group code will still be needed, either temporarily or permanently. Please follow the link below for more information –
