Using RefWorks: Alumni accounts

RefWorks for alumni

Creating alumni accounts

As an alumnus of UNC-Chapel Hill, you may create a new RefWorks account. Current students may also continue using their databases after graduation.  These accounts will be valid as long as UNC Libraries continue subscribing to RefWorks.  If we choose to end our Refworks subscription, alumni accounts will also end.

If you're an alumnus, here are the steps to set up your alumni account:

  • If you already have a Refworks account, in the Tools menu pick "Update User Information". Change your Type of User to "alumni", then click Update.
  • Contact us via the links below and provide the following:
    • Your name
    • Your Refworks account name (if any)
    • The year you graduated
    • The degree you earned
  • Send your information to us using one of these forms: Health Affairs alumni | all other alumni. We will verify your alumni status and reply to you with the group code and (if necessary) how to set up an account.
