How can I share articles with my work groups?

My users like to have the ability to insert citations while they are writing reports. Can QUOSA do this?

How does QUOSA help prevent users from purchasing the same articles over and over?
QUOSA can provide a shopping cart function that integrates with major document deliver vendors. When a user places an order for an article, QUOSA makes sure it isn’t already available via subscription, open access, or in your Virtual Library. If it’s already available, QUOSA provides a download link. If it isn’t available, the order is processed with your document delivery vendor.
Does QUSOSA software only work with Elsevier databases?
No. Although it allows searching of ScienceDirect, Embase, and Scopus, you can also use the software to search PubMed, OvidSP, EBSCO, Google Scholar, and others.
