RefMe changes

RefMe is a popular tool among students for storing references and producing reading lists for assignments. However, it has been sold to a different company, Cite This For Me. See this RefMe Support post for further details. Please pass the following information on to your students should they approach you about the changes. Alternatively, Library Services recommend they contact Cite This For Me directly for support.

Important points:

  • All references have now transferred to Cite This For Me.
  • You will have account access until June 1.
  • After this date, you will lose your stored references unless you have paid for a monthly subscription. Accounts are only available to subscribed members.

We advise you to export all your references as soon as possible so that you can save or transfer them if you wish to do so. In RefMe, you can export references into a Word document using the Export button. You can also export them using a format compatible with other tools, such as Mendeley or Zotero, both of which offer free reference management alternatives. The Library Services team will be investigating what other tools are available, and we’ll be asking students and staff for their feedback too. Watch this space.
