You can set your browser to have Google Scholar link to full text articles in UNLV Libraries' databases from any computer you use.

You can still use your "Legacy" RefWorks account, but it will be phased out by January 2018, so you may want to move your account to the New RefWorks. Using both old and New RefWorks within one document in Write-n-Cite can cause problems, so finish your projects before making the switch.
**How To Transfer Citations From Legacy To New Account
If you had an account in the old version of RefWorks you will need to transition to the new version. Login to your RefWorks account from the main login page and then click the link in the far upper left corner of your account screen that reads, "Move to the newest version of RefWorks from ProQuest" to transfer all of your citations.
Alumni of UNLV have access to RefWorks for the duration of the university's subscription to the software.
If you are a first time user of RefWorks, you will need the library Group Code for off-campus access. You will receive an e-mail message with the Group Code after you create a login . Please save this Group Code for future reference.
If you are an existing user and have forgotten the group code, please contact the UNLV Libraries at 702.895.2100.
Note: Due to license restrictions Alumni will not have access to article databases from off-campus through the "Get Text" button. Full-text access to articles via the "Get Text" button is only available on-campus.
