It is essential to regularly make a back up copy of your EndNote library, so that if something goes wrong you will always have a working copy of your library.
There are a number of ways to create a back up:
Follow the instructions in the UON Introduction to EndNote guide to make a back up of your library.
Please Note: EndNote is not compatible with cloud-based services such as Dropbox, iCloud, Google Drive, Sharepoint, etc.There are synchronisation issues with these services that can corrupt your library if you access/update it directly from the cloud.
To use your EndNote library on more than one computer (e.g. a PC on campus and a Mac at home) you can synchronise the library via EndNote Online.
You can save your sync preference to automate the sync process. From the EndNote toolbar, click Edit > Preferences > Sync. Fill in your email address and password. If you tick Sync automatically, your EndNote library will automatically synchronise every 15 minutes. Auto Sync may slow down your computer. Untick it will allow you to sync manually.

Users of EndNote X8 and later versions can share a library with up to 100 other EndNote users and monitor the status of the shared library with an Activity Feed.
