Refdbms is a database system for sharing bibliographic references among many users at sites on a wide-area network such as the Internet. This paper describes our experiences in building and using refdbms for the last two years. It summarizes the collection of facilities that refdbms provides, and gives detailed information on how well refdbms functions as a collaborative, wide-area, distributed information system.
