Sharing Data with non-RSpace Users (for Edinburgh)
When an RSpace record is exported a link to a stable url is created. If a document has been published as a PDF or an MS word file, then this link can be shared with external parties who don't have an RSpace account, who see a read only version of the record by clicking on the link. You can read more about publishing PDFs/.DOC files in Archiving and Export.
Because RSpace is operating behind the University of Edinburgh’s firewall, sharees will need an EASE account in order to use the link to see the record being shared. This will work automatically with Edinburgh colleagues who do not have an RSpace account. External collaborators will need a guest EASE account to access the record being shared.
