How can I email my Endnote library to another person, i.e my adviser at UNC so that she could have access to the same reference list as we both work o
I'd recommend that you save your library by using the Compress & Save feature. What version of EndNote do you have? If you have a newer version of EndNote, you can find this option under the File menu. It will be called "Compressed Library" or "Compress and save." This will create a file with the extension of .enlx
You can email your advisor this library (or he/she can email you their compressed library).
Then whoever receives the other person's library will want to follow these steps after having both libraries open:
- To import one EndNote library into another, use the Import command from the File menu.
- Choose the EndNote Library import option and be sure to pick the appropriate “Duplicates” setting.
- The advantage of using the Import command over another method is its ability to filter out duplicate references.
Once you have merged the two separate libraries, be sure to re-name it something distinctive and then compress and save it before you mail it back to the other person. When sharing libraries, I often use today's date in the title of the library, so I'm always sure to use the most recent version.
Note: EndNote recommends only merging libraries when both users are using the same version of EndNote, ie. EndNote X or EndNote X3, etc.
Hope this helps, and let us know if you have any questions.
