EndNote Guide: Syncing and Sharing Libraries


Before you can share or sync your library, you must create an account for EndNote Online (see EndNote Online)

EndNote Library Sharing

EndNote library sharing allows you to share your library to work more efficiently with peers.

Follow the steps in the document below to see how.

How Sharing Works

How it works:

  • You can include anyone who has EndNote and an active Online account.
  • EndNote 20 allows sharing for up to 200 users
  • A feed shows who made which changes and when. 
  • Share your entire EndNote library, including references, PDFs, and annotations.
  • For best performance, especially if you have a slow connection, try not to attach any large files.
  • To open a shared library the user must have the same amount of space available on their machine.
  • Everyone can add to, annotate and use the library – at the same time.
  • You can only share one library at a time. This is the library you will be syncing to your Online account.

  • All the other users can sync to their own Online accounts, this will not affect the shared library.
  • You will be giving full access to your Online library and all attachments.

EndNote Syncing

You can sync one EndNote Library to be able to access your work across multiple locations. 

Follow the steps in the document below to set up your library sync.
