How to share a file

The Massachusetts Bar Association's My Bar Access, a valuable member benefit, provides MBA members with an opportunity to share practice information in one convenient, online location.

Each MBA section/division has a "recent shared files" or "latest shared files" option on My Bar Access, which offers members an opportunity exchange documents and links, including multimedia, in a socially-enriched environment. Files uploaded to My Bar Access are housed in each section's library and can only be viewed by MBA members.

To share a file:

  1. Visit http://access.massbar.org.
  2. Login to My Bar Access using your MBA user name and password.
  3. Click on "contribute" in the My Bar Access gold navigation bar.
  4. On the "contribute" landing page, click on "share a file."
  5. Add a new file by following the My Bar Access library entry template. If you want to associate the file with a particular My Bar Access group, choose your section/division from the drop-down menu under "library." Make sure you pick the best "entry type" in order to upload your hyperlink, standard file, YouTube video or copyrighted material.
  6. "Choose" the file you want to share from your desktop and then click the "Upload File(s)" button. Click the green "Next" button on the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.
  7. Follow the Tag Your Entry template to associate your file with a specific section/division or content type. This allows for easier identification and recall in the future, when an MBA member may search for a particular topic on My Bar Access.
  8. Click the blue "Finish" button on the bottom right-hand corner of your screen and your file will upload.
