EndNote Guide: How do I work with multiple computers and EndNote?

Working between computers

If you wish to use EndNote Desktop on more than one device, you will need to have your EndNote Library synchronized with EndNote Online e.g. you may wish to work on a home computer. Follow the instructions on this page to set up your EndNote password for synchronizing.

1.Download EndNote desktop on your second computer.
2.Create an empty EndNote Library e.g. Home.enl
3.Synchronize with your home EndNote Library with EndNote online to import your references.

Note: to work on a document across devices you need to click Update Citations and bibliography to ensure that citation numbers now correspond with the records in your original EndNote Library.
