With the introduction of library sharing in the new EndNote X7.4.2 update, Thomson Reuters has delivered a key requirement which is top of the wish-list of many EndNote and Reference Manager users around the World. This much-awaited functionality enables EndNote X7.4.2 users to share their entire reference collection with up to 14 other EndNote X7.4 users. Everyone invited to join the library can access, add to, and edit the shared library, which is automatically synced to ensure it stays up to date. Everyone in the group can also access the full text attachments, annotations and sticky notes from other library members.
The new shared library feature streamlines and strengthens the process of co-editing any library by allowing all users to access the actual library directly (rather than a saved copy) in real time. That means users can be sure they’re all working with the latest information at the same time.
So whether you want to start sharing your existing EndNote library or you’re looking to work with other researchers to build a new shared library from scratch, EndNote X7.4.2 will work for you.
EndNote X7.4.2 also makes an excellent alternative for Reference Manager users who’ve been holding out for a reference management solution that supports collaborative research and library sharing, as well as provides compatibility with the latest operating systems and platforms. There are special low crossgrade prices that let Reference Manager users simply ‘upgrade’ to EndNote rather than pay full price for a brand new licence. And there’s no complicated conversion process – EndNote automatically migrates your library and Word documents from Reference Manager to EndNote! Read our ‘How to’ guide to learn more.

It’s probably the most famous children’s hospital in the world. Over the past 162 years Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) has saved or transformed the lives of thousands upon thousands of children. It’s also a centre of pioneering research in paediatric medicine, with an impressive record of innovation in cancer, heart and lung diseases, neuroscience, immunology and more.
As at all major research institutes, clinical researchers at GOSH use EndNote bibliographic software to locate and cite the vast literature resources in paediatric medicine. But until recently, and through a technical anomaly (researchers at GOSH actually work for a separate organisation), hands-on medical staff haven’t had the same access to EndNote except by buying an individual licence – not an affordable proposition for over 200 staff.
An interesting new case study describes how a senior librarian at GOSH, determined to provide equal access to such an essential research resource, overcame financial and organisational hurdles to ensure clinical as well as research staff are now able to use EndNote via a site licence. That means they’re able to keep abreast of all the latest literature, therapies and techniques – and the ultimate beneficiaries are, of course, the children they treat.
We did more than just exhibit at this year’s LILAC conference! On the Thursday24th April, Adept’s resident EndNote guru and experienced software trainer, Bob Green, also delivered an enlightening workshop to a packed audience all eager to find out how EndNote can provide a more structured, thorough way to gather and manage research compared to relying on search engines and separate storage methods. The session was well received by EndNote users and newcomers alike, and there were plenty of questions to fuel the discussion at the end.
In addition, one lucky LILAC visitor won themselves a copy of EndNote simply by visiting the Adept stand and entering their business card in our free prize draw. The lucky winner is Bee Sen Gupta from the Greenwich School of Management, London. Congratulations! We’re sure EndNote will become your indispensable, personal research assistant and save you hours of time on literature hunts.
If you didn’t catch us at LILAC then don’t worry – you’ll find the bibliographic software team out and about again at the Health Libraries Group Conference 2014 (CILIP) from 24th to 25th July in Oxford, UK – the place to be for anyone interested in health and social care library and information issues. If you’re passing, why not come pick our brains about EndNote, gain one-to-one advice and get personal software demonstrations? Learn more about CILIP Conference here.
We already know just how important libraries, librarians and information professionals are! They do an amazing job of providing people with access to the information they need to further their knowledge and support their work. Our top-selling referencing tool, EndNote, can help to make their job easier – improving research productivity and managing literary information for library staff and users alike. That’s why librarians are a key focus for us, not just on National Libraries Day this Saturday, but for the whole year round! In fact, we’ll always jump at the chance to meet these champions of discovery and that’s why we’ll be attending four upcoming events this year aimed at librarians and information professionals. Look out for the Adept Scientific EndNote stand.

This week our intrepid EndNote team travelled to The University of Manchester for CILIP’s Umbrella 2013 Annual Conference and Exhibition. The event brings together Library and Information Professionals across the country to share ideas and new ways to improve literacy, access to information and the transfer of knowledge.
A key theme for the day is how libraries are keeping up with the changing nature of the information landscape in today’s digital age. Thanks to the web, web-based and mobile technologies, people have greater access to more research material than ever before. It’s a trend that EndNote has grasped with both hands. No longer confined to the desktop, you’ll also find its renowned research and referencing tools available in varying degrees of complexity on the Web or on an iPad. And thanks to automatic library syncing, you’re able to access, manage and coordinate your library anywhere!
EndNote unlocks the research potential of the web; putting hundreds of online reference resources at your fingertips; making it easy to instantly capture relevant extracts and source information; automatically finding and downloading full text files; plus automatically updating records to keep your collection current. EndNote’s web-based component also makes it easy to share references and collaborate online.

Tomorrow, 9th February is National Libraries Day! So while you’re celebrating your local library and the library staff who strive to connect you with the information you need, why not check out two new tools from Thomson Reuters that streamline research and provide referencing tools wherever your discoveries happen – in the library or on the go. We’re talking about the eagerly anticipated EndNote iPad app and a new free RefScan iPhone app.
The EndNote iPad app enables EndNote X6 users to easily find and import references from online databases into their EndNote library, then use the EndNoteSync capability to update, manage, share and synchronise their references in EndNote desktop and EndNote Web with just one click.

Thomson Reuters’ RefScan app lets users simply search for published material on their iPhone or scan the DOIs from printed documents to quickly look up in Web of Knowledge. Then they can store their findings in their own free, password-protected library in EndNote Web to retrieve anytime, anywhere with internet access. Find out more and download free now.
Thomson Reuters has been particularly busy this month; they’ve released a new X6.0.1 update for Windows and Mac to enhance and maintain the software’s comprehensive functionality; and caused a buzz with news of an introductory offer on the eagerly-anticipated EndNote iPad App due for launch January 2013!
The EndNote X6.0.1 Windows update delivers Windows 8 capability, new global formatting options, the ability to quickly locate missing PDFs and more. The patch also adds a new punctuation option in the style editor as featured in the EndNote X6 Mac release earlier this year.
The EndNote X6.0.1 Mac update provides improved EndNoteSync, PDF folder importing, Ibid handling for citations with Cited Pages and more! Individual EndNote X6 users can access these free updates from the EndNote “Help” menu or by downloading them here. Site licence contacts can find both the Windows and Mac MSI installer for X6.0.1 here.
This month Thomson Reuters also confirmed that the EndNote iPad App will be launched in January 2013. This new tool will let you add, edit, group, copy and email citations on your iPad, then sync them to your EndNote Web account so you can build your reference library wherever you are. Anyone who registers their copy of EndNote X6 with Thomson Reuters by 1st January 2013 will be able to buy and download the EndNote iPad App for just $1 when it’s available.
