Sharing libraries in EndNote

You can share your designated EndNote Sync library with up to 100 other EndNote desktop users, and assign access rights individually for each user.
The quick reference guides below provide an overview of the Sharing window in EndNote 20 (for Windows and macOS users).

The following videos demonstrate the library sharing and group sharing functions in EndNote.
