EndNote Online: How to Share References with Group Members
This video will explain the steps for sharing references with your group in EndNote Web.
Working on a group project? Need to share citations with your collaborators? This video will show you how to create a collection of references in EndNote and share the collection with others.
In order to use EndNote’s group feature, all group members will each need to have their own EndNote Web account.
Step 1. Log in to your EndNote Web account. Mouseover the Organize tab and click on Manage My Groups
Step 2. Click on “New group” and give your group a name. Your group should appear in your My Groups list. It it doesn’t, refresh the page.
Step 3. Click on the “Manage Sharing” button next to the Group Name. On the next page, click “Start sharing this group”. Invite members to the group by entering their email addresses. Be sure to use the email address that your group members used to register for EndNote. This will likely be their University of Guelph email address.
Step 4. Select a permission setting for group members. Read-only means that group members can see the citations but are not allowed to change the citation list in any way. Read & Write means that group members can add and edit citations. Click “Apply” to finish.
To add references to your group, select the relevant citations in your reference list and choose your group from the “Add to Group” dropdown list. Note that file attachments cannot be shared between group members.
To access citations for a group that you did not create, click the "Organize" tab - "Others' Groups".
