Off Campus & On Campus Access

Off Campus Access to RefWorks

Off campus access to RefWorks no longer requires UC authentication, except when you are creating your RefWorks account. Please go to the "Account Setup & Connecting" page for new account information.  However, if you will also be connecting from off campus to any of the UC Libraries' databases, e.g., to export references to RefWorks, you should login first to the UC VPN Network or the UC Libraries proxy server.  Both services will require your central login information.

VPN (Preferred access service)

This link connects you to VPN.  After logging into VPN you must then log in to RefWorks.  For more information about the VPN log in process visit the VPN page.

 Proxy Server

Log in to RefWorks via the proxy server.


Connect to RefWorks from On Campus

Access for all on campus computers, VPN and SecureWireless network users.
