RefWorks Users No Longer Required to Enter Group Code When Logging in to RefWorks Account.







RefWorks users are no longer required to enter a group code when logging in to their account off-campus. If you are a current RefWorks user, simply log in to your  account as you have done in the past. The removal of the group code will not affect how you normally log in. However, for the time being you’ll still need the group code to login to Write-N-Cite.

New Users

New users that do not yet have an account must be on-campus (or within a registered IP range for your Institution) or accessing RefWorks through 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.


RefWorks will be removing the need for the group code when logging in to WNC 4 in an upcoming release.  Until then, users must log in with WNC4 using the current method, either group code/login name/password or with the authentication code.  Use the group code, login name and password or the login code provided after logging into RefWorks on the WNC login page.

WNC III users must continue logging in with their group code/login name/password or via proxy configuration if off-campus.  RefWorks will not be removing the group code requirement from the WNC III login page.
