As 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 –

The classroom PCs in the Medical Library now have Write and Cite 4 installed. The features of this new updated version include:
- Integration into the MS Word ribbon as a separate ‘RefWorks’ tab
- Seamless online and offline experience as Write and Cite 4 synchronises with your Refworks account when you are connected to the internet
- The ability to share across platforms (PC and Mac)
- The insertion of fully formatted citations, footnotes and bibliography while you type your document
- For advanced needs – optional bibliography formatting modifications within Write and Cite 4 (modifying a style’s line spacing, indentation and more)
Go to the RefWorks Community website for resource guides, videos, news, updates and tips for RefWorks users. The platform has been designed to offer additional resources that will not only enhance the user’s RefWorks experience, but will also help the RefWorks team connect directly with their users in an effort to identify what’s important to them.
There is no need to sign up or register, the content on the site is open to everyone – that means all new users, dedicated users, as well as those who just want to learn more about RefWorks. Alternatively, visit the Medical Library’s Enquiry Desk for more information.
