The ability to share projects with other users is one the major advantages of registering an account on EasyBib. It allows for collaborative bibliographies, sharing work directly, and increased teacher/student
1. Using your preferred web browser, go to www.EasyBib.com and create or log in to an existing account to begin. After logging in, you will be brought directly to the project page. If you are not, or wish to return to the project page, click "My Projects" in the upper left corner of the menu.
2. There are two basic ways to access the sharing function; one of which is directly available from your "My Projects" page, which you will want to use if sharing with a fellow EasyBib user. To share from your "My Projects" page, use the "share" link on the left hand side of the listed project, seen here:
3. You will be directed to a new page that prompts you for the recipient's email, what permissions you would like them to have, and which, if any, target folders you would like to share the project with (please see step three here for an explanation of target folders).
4. The second way to share is by clicking "Bibliography" to access the citations in the project, and clicking the share drop-down above the first citation listed, which should generate a drop-down menu with three choices, seen below:
3. Choosing the "Email bibliography" option will provide both a downloadable .docx and a plaintext version of the bibliography in the body of the email. The "Invite others" loads the same webpage as the "share" button on the "My Projects" page. This page prompts you for the recipient's email, what permissions you would like them to have, and which, if any, target folders you would like to share the project with. (Please see step three here for an explanation of target folders.) "Share public link" provides a link that you can send via any method you want, including instant message, social media, and speaking directly. The link is to a regular EasyBib bibliography (but not your account) with options to both save and export; for an explanation on how to export your citations, see the export articles on the EasyBib Getting Started page.
