 In sharing files with other Zotero users, you can maintain a "clean" set of entries in **your OWN** collection (under My Library) and just drag those you wish to share into the relevant directory (or subdirectory) under Group Libraries. This way you minimize the risk of losing entries that might be accidentally deleted by other group members. In sharing files with other Zotero users, you can maintain a "clean" set of entries in **your OWN** collection (under My Library) and just drag those you wish to share into the relevant directory (or subdirectory) under Group Libraries.

 +You need to have the appropriate permissions on the target Zotero group to be able to accomplish this.

 ===== Photographs ===== ===== Photographs =====
 Currently Zotero doesn't have a separate category for photographs. In the meantime, use the "Artwork" item type for a photo. "Title" is not the same as filename. "Abstract" can be used for a description of the work, size for photo resolution (use px or pixels as unit), date for when the photograph was taken, and Extra for geolocation (use an app to get this info, if it's not available already in your camera). Make use of Tags and Notes as well. Currently Zotero doesn't have a separate category for photographs. In the meantime, use the "Artwork" item type for a photo. "Title" is not the same as filename.
