The Library is ending its subscription to ProQuest’s RefWorks citation management software effective August 31, 2016. The decision to end support for RefWorks at OCAD University was arrived at after a thorough evaluation of local usage, cost effectiveness, potential impact on our users and the availability of comparable, and free, citation management systems. It will be necessary for all RefWorks users to back up and export their data (including all files and citations) prior to August 31.

OCAD U's Library is offering trial access to ACLS Humanities E-Books. This resource includes 4,680 full-text, cross-searchable books in the humanities, selected by scholars for their continuing importance for research and teaching.
