EndNote Guide: Syncing and Sharing Libraries

EndNote is a reference organiser and writing solution. It is the ideal, time-saving software to enable users to collect references and then use this library to add citations to a Word document


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

EndNote Library Sharing

You are able 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 must have an active EndNote Online account. These accounts have an expiry.
  • You can only share one library at a time. This is the library you will be syncing to your Online account.
  • You are basically sharing your Online account with the other users.

  • 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 library and all attachments.
