When you leave Brunel University, the RefWorks Alumni Programme allows you to continue using RefWorks free of charge whether you have an account or not, as long as the University has a current subscription.
For ‘New’ accounts:
If you already have a Refworks account, you should be able to continue to use your Brunel email address and the password you have created to access your account. You are advised to change your ‘Role’ to ‘Alumnus/Alumna’ under ‘Settings’ (this option can be found by clicking on your name at the top right of the screen).
If you have any difficulty accessing your account or wish to create an account please email the Digital Services team as outlined below for ‘Legacy’ accounts.
For ‘Legacy’ accounts:
If you already have a Refworks account: under ‘Update Profile’, change your ‘Type of User’ to ‘Alumni’, and save your profile. You are also advised to update your email address before you leave.
If you've forgotten your RefWorks login name and password, you can use the login link (top right) and select ‘Forgot Your Login Information?’ to reset it, or you may contact the Digital Services team, who should be able to help you. Outside core hours, contact RefWorks Support.
If you do not have a RefWorks account already, you should also contact the Digital Services team and provide your name, student number, the year you graduated. A member of the team will verify your alumni status and reply to you with the group code and (if necessary) how to set up an account.
