Sharing Folders

Sharing folders with a fellow researcher or professor is easy in RefWorks. We recommended viewing the Organizing References with Folders tutorial for a demonstration of this process.  There are two ways to share a folder.

3. You have several options available on the Sharing Setting menu. To share your document with your professor, enter his/her email in the "Shared with" box, then select the level of access needed. Individuals given "can modify" are able to do the same level of work in the folder as the owner (you).

  • Creating a public URL allows you to share the contents of a folder publicly. Individuals with the links are able to view the contents of the folder. You can remove the public URL at any time.
