RefShare Added to RefWorks

Oct. 11, 2005

Over the summer, the Baylor Libraries added RefShare to the university's RefWorks account.

RefWorks is a Web-based bibliographic management tool allowing users to build and modify personal databases of annotated bibliographic references. RefShare, an add-on module to RefWorks, provides a quick and easy way to share RefWorks databases (or folders) with others, further enhancing the collaborative research process.

Users can share their RefWorks references with members of the Baylor community, as well as globally with researchers having Internet access.

If clients have already established personal RefWorks accounts, they will find the RefShare option listed in the "Folders" menu in their RefWorks account.

More information on establishing a RefWorks account can be found at www.baylor.edu/lib/electrres/refworks or by contacting Billie Peterson-Lugo by e-mail or at ext. 2344.
