Access problem fixed

This morning's problem accessing RefWorks has now been fixed.

Please let us know if you continue to have any problems.

No access to RefWorks

The server which manages access to UK Access Management Federation resources is down, which means there is no access via UK Access Management Federation links. This includes RefWorks and all our Dawsonera ebooks. We have reported the problem and hope to have it fixed as soon as possible.

Update: RefWorks "Go to Page" Feature

From the RefWorks Community blog:

At the request of users, RefWorks has added a “go to page” feature to simplify the process of sorting through references. Now users have the ability to quickly jump to a specific page, and they no longer have to scroll through numerous pages when searching for references in their personal library. Simply type a page number in the box provided (e.g. page 217 seen below), and you can go directly to the page you need to view.

RefWorks mobile - not supported for University of Bedfordshire users

RefWorks do have a mobile version - RefMobile. However, it does not support Shibboleth authentication, which is what the University of Bedfordshire uses to enable you to log in with your university username and password. RefWorks have told us that they have no plans to make this available. (You can contact if you have any comments to make about this.) You can still use RefWorks on your phone or tablet, but you will have to use the Desktop Version link, and then My Institution's Credentials (Shibboleth).
