RefWorks Tutorial: Sharing information
Sharing information about references with others
There are two important reasons to share information in a RefWorks collection: to allow colleagues or instructors to work with your references, and to make backup copies of your own work.
You can set a read-only password for your RefWorks collection, allowing colleagues or instructors to view, copy, and create bibliographies from your references.
Now, users can log into RefWorks using your Login Name and read-only password to view your sources (see example).
