RefWorks Users: Pilot project to attach documents to RefWorks records

Are you an active RefWorks user? The University Libraries are conducting a pilot project involving the ability to attach documents to RefWorks records. We'd like to recruit current RefWorks users to pilot adding objects (such as PDFs, Excel spreadsheets etc.) to references in a RefWorks account. We can allow up to 200 MB of space per account for the pilot, and we're looking for feedback about this service.

Some caveats to keep in mind:
* This is a pilot project that could end at any time.
* Export options for objects out of RefWorks are not yet known.
* We're moving towards broader support of this kind of functionality, but haven't committed to a long-term strategy.

If you're interested in learning more or participating in the project, contact me at evfine@umn.edu. Thanks!
