RefWorks to Zotero Migration Guide

This guide has been created in order to facilitate the migration of libraries from both "legacy" RefWorks and "new" RefWorks to Zotero.

Welcome

Welcome to the Mount Holyoke College Guide for the RefWorks to Zotero Migration.  Here you will find information on how to migrate your RefWorks account to Zotero, as well as FAQs and Best Practices, about using Zotero.  As of December 2020 Mount Holyoke will no longer subscribe to RefWorks. LITS recommends using Zotero moving forward - Those who are currently using Refworks will have until December 2020 to migrate their citations and PDFs out of RefWorks. This guide will guide you through the process migrating your RefWorks library and orient you to using Zotero.
