RefWorks After You Graduate?

Many RefWorks users have asked about what happens after graduation. You have hundreds of citations organized in RefWorks leading up to graduation day, and does it all then disappear?

No, it does not. RefWorks is currently part of the Capella Alumni Library, which will allow you to keep the information you have stored inside the RefWorks database.

You can also export your RefWorks database to another citation management tool, such as EndNote or ProCite. You can even create a full bibliography of all your citations as a Word document.

And, for those of you who’ve heard one too many dissertation horror stories, you can create a backup version of your RefWorks database.

Both of these options are available in the References menu.
