Starting with EndNote X7, users can share a library with up to 14 people for research collaboration. Anyone who has EndNote X7 can share a library regardless of where s/he is.
To share a library, you need to
- Register for an account in EndNote Online at: http://my.endnote.com or http://myendnoteweb.com.
- Sync your desktop library with your online library first.
- Then in EndNote desktop, go to File and then Share …
- Enter the email addresses of people you would like to invite to access your library.
You can include anyone who is using EndNote X7 up to 14 people, plus yourself. Your whole library can be shared including references, PDFs, and annotations. All the shared people can read, add references to, and edit the library at the same time. There’s no library size limit and no cloud storage limit.
Please keep in mind that you can share only ONE library from your Windows or Mac desktop. However, you can be shared with unlimited number of libraries by others. You can access the shared library only from your desktop though.
Because of the fact that sharing relies on the EndNote sync feature, all users accessing the library must have an EndNote online account connected with their desktop version of EndNote X7.
You may stop sharing your library at any time. To stop sharing, you can remove the name by going to File > Share in your desktop version and clicking on the gear icon.
If you have any question on how to share your library, please feel free to contact us.
