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.
