RefWorks Free to All Alumni

Now you can take your RefWorks account with you after you graduate. You won’t lose any of your work, and you don’t need to transfer any files. Your account will stay just as it is. We can also offer past alumni a free new RefWorks account, no matter when you graduated from NEIU.

Visit the Library Reference Desk on the 1st floor, call (773) 442-4410 or ext. 4410, or email NEIU-Library@neiu.edu for details.
