Getting Started

Welcome to the EndNote user guide. On this site you will find videos, examples and information to help you learn all about EndNote.

So...what is EndNote?

  • EndNote is a references management program and allows users to store, sort and group their references
  • PDF articles can also be attached to the reference and viewed in your EndNote library
  • EndNote is not only a great way to keep references in order, but it can also be used to easily add citations to Microsoft Word documents through the Cite-While-You-Write function

  • EndNote libraries are made up of two parts: the .enl file and the .data folder. These two parts must be kept together, both are needed for the library to work correctly. EndNote libraries should be kept on your computer's hard drive.
  • A library should never be stored in cloud-syncing folders such as DropBox, OneDrive, Box, SugarSync, etc. Syncing folders corrupt EndNote libraries over time
  • References in EndNote libraries can be synchronized between desktop and laptop computers, the online library, and an iPad using EndNote Sync. EndNote libraries can be shared with other EndNote X7 or X8 users through
  • EndNote Sync and Library Sharing.
