EndNote™ is a reference management solution with both a desktop and online component. When used on the desktop, it may be called "EndNote desktop" or "EndNote on the desktop." When used from a web browser, it may be called "EndNote online" or "EndNote Web." EndNote versions X9, 20 and 21 users can synchronize all the references in one desktop library to their online library and share the entire library with colleagues working with EndNote versions X8 through 21. Their online library can contain an unlimited number of references and attachments.
