RefWorks: Storage limit increased to 5 GB

Attention RefWorks users! You can now store up to 5GB of your stuff on RefWorks' "cloud" - a significant increase from before. The UC Berkeley Library has communicated this need to RefWorks, and the change was made today.

What would you store in RefWorks? Besides all the citations, you can store PDFs and other files in your RefWorks database. This new storage limit ensures that you will not likely run out of space, no matter how many files you upload.

Help and tutorials on using RefWorks is available on the Public Health Library's website.
