How do I link (sync) my EndNote desktop library with my EndNote Online (Web) account?

The EndNote Sync feature allows you to synchronize the references (including file and figure attachments) in your EndNote desktop library with the references in your EndNote online library. You must have an active EndNote online account to initiate the Sync process. This online account is also known as EndNote Web or EndNote Basic. You can set up an online account for free as a member of Oxford Brookes University.

To use the Sync feature carry out the following steps:

  • Click the Sync button in the toolbar (blue circle with 2 arrows) to go to the EndNote login. Enter your EndNote e-mail address and password. Click OK.
  • The Sync process should automatically begin synchronizing your desktop references with your EndNote online references so that an exact match exists in both libraries.

Note: The library that you want to sync must be open and currently active to perform the Sync process. You cannot initiate the Sync process in Online Mode.
