The upgrade process will put references from your Legacy account into a Project in ProQuest RefWorks.
If you had more than one account, either multiple accounts in Legacy RefWorks, or both Legacy accounts and a ProQuest RefWorks account, then your references from these accounts will be in different Projects. Most users start with an Untitled Project in ProQuest RefWorks and this is where you will probably find your recent references.
You will need to switch between projects to see all your references. You can select which project to look at in the bar at the top of ProQuest RefWorks:
ProQuest RefWorks will remember the last Project you viewed so you should not need to keep switching Projects.

More about Projects:
We have now completed the institutional upgrade to ProQuest RefWorks. Legacy RefWorks account holders should have received email notification. A few accounts were not upgraded and we will look at those accounts to resolve outstanding upgrade problems.
Your legacy account will remain available until Legacy RefWorks is switched off so if there are problems with the upgrade you can continue to work with your legacy account while this is resolved. Once the account is successfully upgraded we recommend you do not make any changes to your legacy account.
When your account is upgraded on 20 June you should get an email telling you how to access your new account. For help with your upgraded account please see:
After the upgrade you may also need to update documents created using Word Add-ins:
