In selecting collaborative writing tools, you might consider if you would like to:
- Organize/track multiple versions
- Track individual contributions
- Back up documents
- Protect private information
Google Drive is the UMN campus solution for working collaboratively on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
If Google Drive does not fit your needs, there are a range of tools available that aren't part of the U of M infrastructure that have free and paid versions such as Authorea and Overleaf. You can request a consultation with your subject librarian to discuss what tools and workflows might work for you.
