EndNote users: Action required

March 5th, 2020

If you are an EndNote user, your EndNote Desktop Library needs to be updated, and the IS team has some simple guidance to help.

Work to make your personal Z:drive “read only” is now well underway and is scheduled to be completed by Wednesday 18 March. Staff and students are migrating their data onto OneDrive and are benefiting from the improved space, collaboration and security features.

If you are a current user of EndNote Desktop it is likely your library is stored on your Z: drive.

From now you will need to sync your EndNote Desktop Library with EndNote Online and to ensure a smooth transition, the IS team has created a simple guide to show you exactly what to do.

You will have three options and the one you choose will depend on if, and how, you currently use EndNote.


Existing Users
Create an EndNote Online account from an existing Desktop Library and sync

New users
Create a new EndNote Desktop Library and sync with EndNote Online

Personal Device user
Download EndNote to a personally owned computer and sync with EndNote Online

Colleagues in Libraries said: “This is a great opportunity for the EndNote community to start storing their library of references online, a secure and accessible from anywhere resource that we are keen to promote.

“The team are on hand to support you using both EndNote Desktop and EndNote Online and we would encourage you to visit our Managing references guidance on Studying Effectively.”

For wider data migration, specialists are set to support staff and students. If you think you may need assistance in migrating data to OneDrive or migrating your EndNote library please contact your local Campus IT.

To start your personal data move now, more information can be found on the Storage Solutions SharePoint.
