Understood that your project was not set up to promote open bibliographic data.
My point is that it appears to have the effect of providing good bibliographic services to RefWorks
institutional customers while not promoting open bibliographic data.
MyReferences appears to promote not open sharing, but closed sharing, where both
the data sharing capability and the data itself are made available only to individuals at
institutions which have RefWorks subscriptions.
