EndNote : EndNote Online

A guide to using EndNote at the University of Lethbridge

What is EndNote Online?

EndNote Online is a web-based counterpart to EndNote, the desktop application. When you save references to EndNote Online, you are saving them to servers located "in the Internet cloud" (i.e., NOT locally at the University of Lethbridge). This means you can get to your EndNote Online library from anywhere you have Internet access. It also means that your reading interests, especially if you are doing controversial research, can be subject to the U.S. Patriot Act.

EndNote Online is limited to holding 10,000 references. It is also limited in its functionality in that you do not have the same control over output styles, etc. as you do using EndNote, the desktop application.

EndNote Online is recommended for use by undergraduate students. It can also be useful for those wanting to collaborate and to share a library with others.

Users may set up a free EndNote Online account by registering at:

Once you have set up an EndNote Online account, you may integrate this account with your EndNote desktop application using the "Sync" function to facilitate the transfer of resources between EndNote Online and EndNote.
