Q. I'm trying to use Write-N-Cite and being asked for a group code. What should I do?

Answer

If you are being asked for the group code to use Write-N-Cite, you need to set up the proxy server to allow for off campus access. Here are the instructions on how to do so:

Setting up the Write-N-Cite Proxy in Windows

1. Select the Start Button-->Programs-->RefWorks-->WNC Configuration Utility 

2. Copy and Paste in the following URL: http://proxy-hs.researchport.umd.edu/login?url=https://www.refworks.com/Refworks/?WNC=true

3. Click OK

4. Write-N-Cite should now be configured. You will be prompted for your library barcode when WNC starts.

Setting up the Write-N-Cite Proxy for MACs

1. Select Preferences from the Write-N-Cite menu

2. Copy and Paste in the following URL: http://proxy-hs.researchport.umd.edu/login?url=https://www.refworks.com/Refworks/?WNC=true

3. Restart Write-N-Cite

4. Write-N-Cite should now be configured. You will be prompted for your library barcode when WNC starts.
