    Personal Research Spaces

    It is recommended that a user keeps their personal space (Test User Research Space is a personal space for this user) private and creates a new Research Space for any collaborative projects. When a new user is added to a Research Space, by default they can view the space, but permissions to create, update and delete items in the space can also be added. Only an owner of the space can delete the space. See Creating a New Research Space topic to add a new research space.


  7. Review the SIdora Folders and Resource Definitions to decide what folders and/or resources to add to your space next.
