Have a RefWorks Account? Want to RefShare?

refshareRefWorks is a web-based citation manager that allows you to store, organize and create bibliographies from the articles you have located in the Capella Library and other resources. If you are not using it now and want to find out more, check out the RefWorks Basic Features guide to find out to sign up for a free account.

If you are currently using RefWorks or plan to sign-up you may not be aware of a feature called RefShare. This feature allows you to create a link to a particular folder of articles and you can send that link to others to view.

Here is a link from my RefWorks account for some research I did on the TEACH Act:

http://www.refworks.com/refshare?site=048131200384000000/RWWS6A1376054/TEACH%20ACT

I can email this link and others can view the articles, but they can not alter the list unless I give them permission. Pretty neat huh?

Want more on information on how this works? It was surprisingly easy. The last section of the RefWorks Advanced Features guide shows how to share articles with others using RefShare.

So start sharing your article searching brillance with your peers! If you have any questions on using this RefShare please contact a Capella Librarian.
