FLOW - the new RefWorks

During 2014 RefWorks will be migrating to a new and improved platform called Flow. All the features of RefWorks you are used to will be there plus several wonderful additions.

New RefWorks accounts will no longer be created instead Flow will be where your account will be created.  Read the sections below based on whether you are a new user or already have an existing RefWorks account. You may want to print this page for future reference.

For current Flow users log in here


Important!  At this time new accounts must be created using a computer or laptop.  Mobile devices such as an iPad or smartphones do not support new account creation at this time.  Once your account is created you will be able to log into Flow and take advantage of its features using your mobile device. There is no app to install, instead you would access Waggoner library through Safari or the internet browser on your mobile device.


For new Flow users:

  • If you are currently off campus reading this, follow these directions:
    • Click here to sign up and create your Flow account.
    • An invitation access code will be needed to authenticate you are a Trevecca user.

Contact Waggoner library at 615-248-1570 or library@trevecca.edu for this access code.

    • An alternative method that does not require the invitation access code:

Register through the internet browsers within the Trevecca Network via Citrix to provide authentication without the invitation access code. Use your computer or laptop to access Citirix. The iPad app, Citrix Receiver, is not reliable for this process.

  • If you are currently on campus reading this, follow these directions:
    • Click here to sign up and create your Flow account.
    • Follow the prompts to create your account and begin using Flow.

Re: Internet browsers

The Favorites bar [IE] or Bookmarks bar [Firefox] need to be viewable to take full advantage of Flow's features.

For current Flow users log in here


For existing RefWorks users:

  • Log into your RefWorks account.
  • Notice the "New" icon in the top left corner of your RefWorks homepage. Clicking this link will help you move your existing resources from RefWorks over into Flow.

  • You may encounter a security warning.  Click “Continue”.
  • Click “Start Using Flow” to create your new account and begin the migration process.
  • You’ll be asked to create a password.  Make sure you read the terms of use and sign up for the Flow Tips and Service updates if you'd like.
  • Now add your name and select your role and focus area and click on 'Next'.
  • Set up the "Save to Flow" button (the easiest way to get research into your Flow account!) and watch the video to see how it works.
  • Once you click on “Next Step”, Flow will start moving your database.
  • In a few minutes, you’ll see a confirmation page telling you the migration has been successful. 
  • Click on “Let’s Go” to bring you into your Flow library. 
  • Note: You can continue to use your RefWorks account, but any references added to your RefWorks database are not automatically transferred into Flow.  To move those into Flow, you’ll need to repeat the steps above.
  • View the help guide on moving Refworks to Flow as needed.
