An EndNote library can store unlimited number of references.
You can share your library with others by creating a compressed filename.enlx file:
File > Compressed Library (.enlx) > Create
Filename.enlx includes the filename.enl file as well as its associated .Data folder.
Creating EndNote Library
What is an EndNote library?
It is an EndNote file. When you create a file in MS Word, it is called word document, and in MS Excel, spreadsheet. In EndNote, when you create a file, it is called "library".
Create a new library:
- Open the EndNote program
- Go to File > New
- Give your library file a name and save it
- Two entities will be created:
filename.Data : stores images, PDFs and other materials associated with the library
filename.enl : the EndNote library/file
To move or copy EndNote library, you need to move or copy both the filename.Data and filename.enl
