Sharing your Collections

RefWorks allows for sharing outside your institution as well as inside, however, each person you share your collection with will need a RefWorks account in order to view your research.

1. Click the Share & Export icon  or the Sharing menu item to start

 
2. Select the collection to be shared and the groups with whom you will share it.

Type the email address of the person (add one at a time) and select the level of access for the person you're inviting:

  • Read – view items and read documents
  • Annotate – view items, read documents, and annotate documents
  • Modify – view/read/annotate documents, edit existing annotations, add documents, remove documents, and add a note to an item

  1. Optionally, add a personal note
  2. Click Share Collection

The person you've invited will get an email notification, and a notification inside RefWorks, where they can accept (or reject) the invitation. If the person doesn’t have a RefWorks account, they will be asked to create one.

Remember, when you share a collection any sub-collections are also shared.
