For further information on how to collaborate using Endnote, consult Chapter 7 in the EndNote X7 Little How-To Book . The PDF document below provides an overview table comparing the different ways to collaborate.
With version X7.2 and later it is possible to share your desktop library with others with whom you are collaborating. This could be very useful for work teams within Monash who are collaborating on specific projects.
To share a library you, and all colleagues you share a library with will need:
Your entire library, including file attachments can be shared with up to 14 colleagues (please see important note below).
You can only share one library with others, however multiple libraries can be shared with you.
Access to someone else's library is only available from your desktop.
Anyone you have shared your library with can add to, annotate and use the library at the same time.
Access to your library is controlled by you from your desktop. An individual's access can be removed at anytime.
The syncing process between a desktop library and Endnote Online is used to share a desktop library.
HOW TO SHARE YOUR LIBRARY
For further information about how to share your library view the EndNote youtube clip created by Thomson Reuters.
A number of factors may impact on the way you choose to share an EndNote library.
If you have more than one library and use EndNote online you may wish to consider the following scenario for collaborating with colleagues.
If you are working collaboratively with colleagues outside of Monash it is recommended that sharing occur via an EndNote Online library by using the group sharing function instead. In this way there are no concerns about copyright infringements because pdf attachments cannot be shared. Links to documents are able to be shared.
