EndNote sync

EndNote allows you to synchronise your desktop library to an online account. This means you can use the sync feature to download your library from your online account to another computer or device. For example, you can have your primary EndNote library on your personal computer and sync it to your work computer, or to your iPad. Any changes you make in your EndNote library will sync and be reflected in your EndNote library on other devices.

Please be very careful when syncing your library, as you can only sync one library at a time. If you have several libraries, e.g. separate libraries for individual projects, or you share desktop libraries with colleagues, syncing may not be the best option.

Watch the video below for instructions on how to use the sync feature.
