Library databases allow you to export your citations to RefWorks. While each database vendor is different, all provide an option to identify or mark items that are of interest, and then export your citations to RefWorks.
You can create folders in RefWorks. This means you can create different folders for different projects, or different folders for varied aspects of a particular project. The same item can exist simultaneously in more than one folder.

The Reference Desk is staffed until 10PM Sunday-Friday and until 5:00pm on Saturday.

Certain users may also have permission to post their folders or databases on a shared page viewable by all RefWorks Users within their organization.You can share a folder or database from the Organize & Share Folders tab in the main viewing area of RefWorks.
For each folder there is a Share icon and at the top of the list of folders is the same icon that will Share Entire Database.
Clicking on the Share icon will take you to a Shared Folder Options page. This page will allow you to set up various permissions for your RefShare Recipients.
