I love ShareCenter and think it's THE collaborative tool of the future. My favorite part is the ability to find people with similar interests and needs. The opportunity for sharing and not having to reinvent the wheel make this tool invaluable!
The ShareCenter is a great community tool as it is designed to connect individuals through topics to support idea sharing and partnerships. One of the most powerful features of ShareCenter is its ability to grow in very flexible ways by responding organically to what users want.
ShareCenter has really allowed me a window into the creative ways in which other CTSA's are handling similar program elements. In addition to looking specifically for resources I need, I have found it useful to look at everything that is available and have often discovered tools to adopt that will make my life as a CTSA administrator easier.
The information so generously posted by ShareCenter members helped me during the course of working on a survey project. There is a sense of common purpose among the contributors and a willingness to share areas of strength and expertise across institutions that is greatly appreciated by those of us who go to the site for help.
