EndNote Online overview

EndNote Online is the online counterpart to EndNote Desktop. Using EndNote Online, you can:

  • create a personal EndNote library of references.
  • insert in-text citations into a Word document.
  • generate a reference list automatically in a preferred citation style.
  • share groups of references with colleagues who also use EndNote.
  • capture references from the web into your EndNote library using the EndNote capture references bookmarklet.
  • access an unlimited number of references and unlimited attachments.

Although you can effectively use EndNote Online on its own (standalone), you can get access to more powerful features if you use it in conjunction with EndNote Desktop by syncing the two libraries.


You can use the Sync function available in EndNote Desktop to synchronize all references between EndNote Desktop and EndNote Online to ensure that your libraries have the same content.
