The ability to collaborate with fellow researchers quickly and efficiently - whether they are across campus, the country, or the world - is one of the critical requirements of digital scholarship in the 21st century.
While EndNote libraries cannot be stored on the cloud, this does not mean you cannot access your EndNote Library from multiple devices. EndNote Online allows you to sync your library to the Cloud so that you can access, make changes, and add references from any device.
EndNote also allows you to share your library or a group within your library with your supervisor, or your research collaborators through EndNote Online or by sharing your Library directly via email.
To access your library from multiple devices, you will need to sync it to EndNote Online.
There are two ways to share your EndNote Library or a group, your supervisor, or research collaborators.
You can share your EndNote desktop library by selecting Share from the File menu:
Note: Since sharing relies on EndNote's synchronisation ability, all users accessing the library must have an EndNote Online account.
You can share a local copy of your library by going to File and selecting Compress Library. Select Create an Email option and select whether you wish to send your entire library or just a group.
Note: Due to copyright restrictions, if you are sharing your library outside the ANU, make sure you do not share any full-text PDFs.
If you intend to accept an email invitation to join someone else’s library:
You can now add references to, and annotate, items in the library, even if others are using it at the same time.
If you wish to collaborate on an EndNote Library, such as with a research group, it is recommended to create a new, separate library specifically for the project, rather than sharing your own library with your colleagues. This will allow all collaborators equal access to the Library.
To set up a collaborative EndNote Library:
Note: Remember that it is a breach of copyright and licensing agreements to share full text PDFs with researchers outside of the ANU.
