Keeping your RefWorks account

I'm about to graduate from UMass Amherst. How do I maintain access to my RefWorks account?

Simply update your user information (aka Profile in 2.0) by changing the User Type to Alumni. Update the email address with your new alumni email address or a personal address.

I'm a graduate of UMass but never used RefWorks. How do I set up a RefWorks account for the first time?

(a) Register with Maroon Central to obtain a 10-digit alumni ID.
You can also contact the Alumni Association at 1-800-456-8627 or  .  

(b) Apply online for an alumni e-mail (forwarding) account; you will be asked for your alumni ID.   

(c) Once you've established an alumni e-mail address, send a message to and ask for the Group Code to access your RefWorks account. You will need the Group Code each time you log in.

(d) To set up your RefWorks account, go to Under User Type, select Alumni. 

Good News Alumni!
