RefShare

Writing about web page http://www.refworks.com/refshare.shtml

I've been taking a look at the promotional material for RefShare, and realised it doesn't quite do what I thought it might, i.e. it doesn't allow for more than one person to import data into the same folder (at least I don't think so).

What it allows for is placing folders of information on central institutional web pages. Some ideas I had for use of RefShare in this way are:

  • Tutors can post their folders onto the pages as reading lists;
  • Library staff could possibly put up folders as a quick start intorduction to the literature on a certain topic (how might this square against our desire to stop the spponfeeding of students?);
  • Researchers within a particular research group can easily share their resources with others in their group (it is possible to limit access to shared folders only to certain groups).

Does anyone have any other ideas? Is it worth trialling the module?
