How to convert to an alumni account after graduation.
I am a Hamilton or Kirkland College alum. Can I use RefWorks?
Yes. Please contact Hamilton's RefWorks administrator to request an account. Send your full name, class year, and email address to:
firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your alumni status has been verified
you will be sent an invitation to create an account.
I had a RefWorks account as a student. Is my account still active?
Possibly. If your account was created on the legacy platform (before 2017), we recommend that you request a new RefWorks account (see instructions above), on the new platform. If you had references in your legacy account that you wish to save you can import them from your legacy account into your new RefWorks account. You may need to contact RefWorks support if you need assistance accessing your legacy account. You will need to provide them with the username and email address you used when you created your original account.
How do I access my legacy account?
