Use EndNote Online to Share Your Library or Group

You can share your library or a group of references with other researchers. You and the researchers you share with will need to have EndNote Online accounts.

Instructions from Clarivate:

Compress your EndNote Library and Email It

A compressed EndNote library contains both the .enl file and the associated .data folder. Compressing the library can make large libraries small enough to email. If the compressed library is too large, it can be sent using UVM's FTP service.

To compress an EndNote library:

  1. Open the library in EndNote.
  2. Open the File menu
  3. Choose Compressed Library (.enlx).

The recipient can open the compressed library file, which will automatically create an.enl file and .data folder.

Use the Travelling Library

When you add references from EndNoe to a Word document, those references are added to an EndNote Travelling Library integrated into the Word document. When you email someone a Word document that has been formatted with EndNote, the recipient can open the Word document and export the traveling library into their own EndNote Library. The recipient must already have EndNote installed on their computer. 

Steps for the person receiving the Word Document

  • Create a new, empty EndNote Libary, or open the EndNote library to which you will be adding the references from the Word document
  • Open the document in Word and click on the EndNote 20 tab
  • Select Export to EndNote > Export Traveling Library
  • Export the traveling library to a new or exiisting EndNote Library
