If you have an existing Legacy RefWorks account, you can import your library into a new Zotero account. Some important things to know in advance:
Personal Notes and User fields
Digital File Attachments
There are two steps to moving from Legacy RefWorks to Zotero:
Let's start with Zotero
Now go to Legacy RefWorks
Login to your Legacy RefWorks account.
If you want to keep your folders organized as they already are, right-click a single folder and choose Export. Select Bibliographic Software. This should download a text file. If it opens in a new tab instead, go to the browser menu and choose "Save as" to download the txt file.
To export your entire library at once, click Export in the Quick Access menu directly under your folders. Then select Bibliographic Software in the Export References pop-up window. This should download a text file. If it opens in a new tab instead, go to the browser menu and choose "Save as" to download the txt file.
Head back to Zotero
And now RefWorks again
And finally, Zotero
