EndNote: EndNote X8

Information on using EndNote, with links to resources.

EndNote X8 Videos and Materials

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 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.

These videos were not created for YouTube. They are conversions of live class recordings with little or no editing.  The quality will not be equal to that of other EndNote videos.

Please contact us if you would like downloadable versions of these videos.  Please note the files are very large.

The Care and Feeding of Healthy EndNote Libraries

Mac Sierra, High Sierra, and Mojave Users

MacOS versions 10.12 (Sierra), 10.13 (High Sierra), and 10.14 (Mojave) contain features to save the contents of the Documents folder in iCloud and to "optimize" storage by storing less-used files only in iCloud online. EndNote libraries stored in iCloud, even when stored on both the hard drive and online, are subject to corruption over time. If you choose to store your documents in iCloud, we suggest creating a separate folder in your home folder and saving your EndNote libraries there.  Do not store EndNote libraries in iCloud or any other cloud-syncing folder, and do not store EndNote libraries in the Documents folder if you have selected the option to store documents in iCloud.

You can find more information on these features on the Apple support site at these locations.

 

General Safety Notes

  • 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, X8, or X9 users through EndNote Sync and Library Sharing.
