Share your references with other researchers in either read or read/write mode. This could be useful for class projects, class reading lists, and group research.

To share a group:

Important points about sharing groups:

  • You can share groups with EndNote Online users at any institution.
  • You can share groups with individuals who have not yet created their EndNote Online account. The group will automatically appear after they've registered and logged in.
  • Groups shared to you do not count against your 500 personal group limit.
  • You can give Read only access to some users and Read & Write access to other users for the same group.
  • If more than one person is editing the same reference simultaneously, the person who saves last will submit the final edits.
  • Users with Read & Write access can edit reference data and remove the reference from the shared group. They cannot delete the reference from the owner's library.
  • References in shared groups can be searched.
  • References in shared groups cannot be copied to your Quick List.
  • Shared groups are available to generate a Bibliography or an export file.
