Can library visitors who are not University of Minnesota students, staff or faculty use set up and use a RefWorks account?


Non-U library users can set up a RefWorks account (choosing Researcher, Alumni, or Other, as appropriate) in the "Type of User" box during the process. Such users will be able to access and work with their accounts when they are physically present in one of the U libraries, but they will not be able to access them remotely.
