Off-Campus RefWorks Users Need New Write-N-Cite URL

Due to changes in the library’s authentication method, users of RefWorks who use the Write-N-Cite (WNC) plug-in will need to make a simple change to their configuration. You may remember that you had to enter a certain URL into the “WNC Configuration Utility” in order to use WNC from off the campus network. Well, now that URL has changed, so you will need to use this one:

http://lproxy.nymc.edu:60000/login?url=https://www.refworks.com/Refworks/?WNC=truewnccu

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Click on Start on your computer (lower left corner). 
  2. Select All Programs, then click on RefWorks, then select WNC Configuration Utility.  
  3. Enter the above URL (cut and paste) into the box. Click OK.

That should take care of it. You should now be able to use RefWorks Write-N-Cite with Word as before. But do note that your password is no longer your Social Security number. Instead it is your last name. Please direct any questions or comments to the Reference Desk 914-594-4210 or Access Services 914-594-4200. Thank you.
