All content in your notebook can be shared with others. You can share with anyone else who has an email address and/or internet connection, whether or not they already have a LabArchives account.

Note: Make sure that, if you create a group, you are prepared for every member of that group to have the rights you give it. You will not be able to restrict the rights of a specific group member further.
