RefWorks Alert

Since we never seem to lose interest in ALL THINGS REFWORKS, I'd like to add this little ditty from Ivy Garner, our resident RefWorks Guru.

"For all  “new” and "current" users of Refworks. Refworks just recently released an updated version of Writencite3, called Writencite4.

However, due to numerous complaints regarding the operation and functionally of  the newest version, (WnC-4), all Refworks users are advised to continue using the earlier version (WnC3) until further notice"
