RefWorks | Zotero | EndNote

RefWorks Logo

Florida State Universities’ access to the state-wide RefWorks subscription will end on December 31, 2020. All RefWorks users must transfer their bibliographic information to an alternate citation manager before December 31.  After December 31, FSU users’ RefWorks accounts will be permanently inaccessible.

The decision to cancel the RefWorks subscription was based on tightening budgets and the availability of high quality, free or low-cost alternatives. Please see instructions on transferring data from RefWorks to Zotero, Mendeley, or EndNote.


Mendeley is a reference manager that allows you to create a personal database of references related to your research, access or upload data, and insert citations into Word using any one of thousands of citation styles. If you are collaborating with other researchers, Mendeley allows you to share references. We have a LibGuide to using Mendeley.
