Abstract: In many collaborative research settings, electronic bibliographic repositories (bibliographies) are used to aggregate information about related work among researchers. These bibliographies allow for group bibliography collection, individual tracking of each user's library, and personal annotation capabilities within each user's library. However, most tools used for managing bibliographic data do not support collaboration. Given the collaborative nature of the research group, this information should be shareable between researchers within the group and potentially across larger organisational units (for example, research institutes). By using Shared References (ShaRef), users can share bibliographic information and collaborate, publish and export data using a variety of output channels. ShaRef's goal is to make sharing of and collaboration with bibliographic information easier than it is today.
