Login details for both are available below. Please be advised that these are two completely separate tools; data will not sync between the two.
Whichever version of RefWorks you use, you can use it in isolation as a database of references with the ability to create bibliographies of its content.
Alternatively, you can use RefWorks in tandem with either WNC or RCM. These link your RefWorks account with your Word document, allowing you to insert citations as you write, creating a dynamic reference list.

We're currently experiencing problems adding citations to documents created using RCM on campus with Word 2016, version 16.0.4549.1000. We have reported this and are working on a solution.

If problems persist, please email your Academic Librarian, or attend one of our drop-ins.
Why is the place of publication being duplicated in book references?
We're working to rectify this. In the meantime, please edit your book references in RefWorks - this will ensure the reference is correct each time you use it. To do this, remove the duplicate entry from the Publisher field. If you're unsure how to do this, please visit one of our drop-ins.
