Share Your References with Colleagues and Students Using RefShare

If you’re using RefWorks as your citations manager you already know what a great tool it is for creating a database of references and formatting bibliographies in your research papers. But it does a lot more than this! Using the RefShare component of RefWorks you can share a folder of references or even your entire database with your colleagues, collaborators, classmates, students, residents, or anyone, regardless of their affiliation. RefShare is a great tool for collaboration, for sharing references with co-authors, for distributing electronic course reading lists with links to full-text, for posting class reading lists on a central Web page, and for providing easy access to information for disparate researchers collaborating on a project.

You can access RefShare from the RefWorks Tools menu:
