then click on the tab for Organize and Share.

To Share a folder:

click the icon  to the right of the folder you want to share

Click “limitations” to set how and what visitors can do with your citations

This allows you to set what visitors can do with your citations, e.g. can they export them, add comments, print them, etc. 

Add your email on this page as the system will not allow you to share a folder without it 

Click “Save,” and your selected folder of citations is shared with others.
