The Care and Feeding of Healthy EndNote Libraries

  • EndNote libraries are made up of two parts: the .enl file and the .data folder. These two parts must be kept together, both are needed for the library to work correctly.

  • EndNote libraries should be kept on your computer's hard drive. Storing and editing libraries on a network drive can lead to corruption and performance issues.

  • EndNote libraries should never be stored in cloud-syncing folders such as DropBox, OneDrive, Box, SugarSync, etc. Syncing folders corrupt EndNote libraries over time.

  • Uninstall your previous version of EndNote before installing a new version.

  • References in EndNote libraries can be synchronized between desktop and laptop computers, the online library, and an iPad using EndNote Sync.

  • Complete EndNote libraries can be shared with other EndNote X7 or X8 users through EndNote Sync and Library Sharing.

EndNote X8 Videos

Below are downloadable versions of the EndNote X8 videos.

These are zipped files. You will need to extract them after downloading before playing them. They are in the MP4 format and should play in most video players.

These files have closed captions and the full-length classes have chapter markers. On Windows, you may need to use a program other than Windows Media Player to access chapter markers and subtitles.
