Legacy RefWorks: Alumni Access

RefWorks Alumni Program

According to RefWorks-COS, as long as an institution subscribes to RefWorks, alumni will have access, allowing them to continue using their personal research databases for future professional and academic endeavors.

Who is eligible to receive lifelong access?
Any alumni, whether they already have a RefWorks account or not, will have lifelong access to RefWorks through this program.

If you don't have a RefWorks account already, after entering in the Group Code, click on "Sign up for an Individual Account."

How do alumni log-in to their RefWorks accounts from off-campus?
To access your RefWorks account as an alumni, you will need to login by entering the Skidmore's Group Code. Contact Kathryn Frederick, x5505, for Skidmore's "subscriber group code".

Other important information

  • We urge you to change your "Type of User" to "Alumni" in your account settings. This can be done by going to Update Profile in the top right tool bar.  This allows Administrators to track and run accurate usage reports.
