Library Research Guide
You can share your RefWorks folders with colleagues at K-State and outside of K-State. Each person you share your collection with will need a RefWorks account in order to view your research (which they can create for free!). You can share with an unlimited number of RefWorks users through your K-State RefWorks account.
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.
When you share a collection any sub-collections are also shared.

Share your Google Doc with anyone who has a RefWorks account. In addition to adding and editing text to your document, they can also add in-text citations and footnotes from their RefWorks account. You can also collaborate using the same set of references by sharing your RefWorks folder with your collaborators.
Note: Anyone you share with can delete in-text citations you’ve included in your document. However, they cannot delete references from your RefWorks account.
