Directions for adding citations from an old RefWorks account to a new account:

1. Create a new account. - you must use your UMass email account for this account.
     This is a completely different account, not one linked to your old account!

2. Once you are in your new account, import your references by clicking on the + button on the menu bar.

   a. Select Import References

   b. Select RefWorks under Import from another reference manager

You'll be prompted to log into your old account, and they'll take care of the rest.  The time it takes depends on the size of your collection and your network speed.
