Guidance on using EndNote software at the University of Adelaide

If you work in more than one location you can use the Sync function in EndNote to make the contents of your EndNote library available on all of your computers.  You can also sync your desktop and online library to allow access to your library across multiple devices (including iPads).

Take note:

  • You can only sync to one EN Online account.
  • For the first synchronization, a large EN library may take a long time.  Future synchronization will be much faster as it only syncs new references.
  • After synchronization any reference you delete will be deleted from both the desktop EN library and the EN Online library.
  • Group Sets will not synchronise to EN Online.

The following quick reference guides outline the steps for configuring EndNote Sync (for Windows and macOS).

The two videos below demonstrate how to configure the Sync function and view the Sync status in your EndNote library.
