Maintenance Thursday night Jan. 26th-27th

In the night between Thursday and Friday 26-27th January RefWorks will carry out maintenance on the Utrecht University database. This is in order to solve recurring access and performance problems. It is planned between 0:00 and 3:00 AM and should not take longer than 45 minutes. You will see a maintenance message if you try to log during these hours.

UPDATE: Apparently it is taking RefWorks much longer than expected to reset the servers our database is running on. As soon as we have more information we will get back to you.

UPDATE 2: RefWorks seems to be up and running again. UU staff and students: please inform us (bibliotheek [at] uu.nl) and RefWorks of any remaining performance issues.

Problems seem solved

Problems with accessing accounts and slowness now seem solved. If you still encounter problems please contact RefWorks helpdesk at support [at] refworks.com or (for UU students and staff) the library at bibliotheek [at] uu.nl
