The sidebar, in a Finder window, is as place holder/shortcut for various locations: DEVICES, SHARED, PLACES etc. Is there a preferences file that one can export to another computer to replicate a users sidebar on the new computer?

One of my users is being given a different Mac to use and the user would like to take all of his sidebar locations to the new Mac as he frequently visits these  locations many time during the day.

I have attached a pic of my sidebar just to clarify the term 'sidebar'.
