    On Saturday, August 18, 2018 ProQuest has scheduled a maintenance window to upgrade infrastructure, enhance security, and maintain reliability of our products, including RefWorks and legacy RefWorks. 


    During this time, RefWorks will be unavailable and a maintenance page displayed for web-based products during the time of the window.

    • Test critical infrastructure redundancy to ensure product resiliency from unexpected faults


    Access may be available sooner than the published end time depending on completion of testing.
