RefWorks (Classic): IE 9

Compatability Issues

Internet Explorer 9 users may find they are unable to edit the "Title" field when manually entering a reference. This is a known bug.

There are a few ways to fix this:

1. In the top right-hand side of the URL bar, you may see a little broken page icon:

Broken link icon

Click on this icon and it will turn blue:

Functional link icon

You should now have full functionality in RefWorks.

2. You can also turn this link on by clicking the little wheel icon at the very top right-hand side of your browser window and selecting "Compatibility View." After selecting "Compatibility View," you will be able to modify the fields.
