Benefits to EndNote Web are:
NOTE: Depending on how your computer is set up, you may need to "temporarily allow scripted windows" at top.
1. Connect to www.myendnoteweb.com from a computer on the ODU campus/network.
If you're off campus, use this link: http://www.myendnoteweb.com (authenticated).
2. Click Sign-up for an account; complete the requested information; agree to the terms.
Note: Your account is active for 12 months. To keep your account active you must login within a 12-month period.
"Groups" are like folders for your references. You can create different groups for different classes/assignments.
Share your group:
In EndNote Web you can share your references with other EndNote Web users. Groups that other users have shared with you will appear under Others' Groups.
To rename or delete a group: go to "Organize / Manage My Groups"
To add references to a group: go to "My References," select your reference, then "Add to group".
NOTE: When sharing references with a group, the group will not have access to attachments. To access the attachments, you will need to sync the EndNote Online references with the desktop version.
To edit a reference:
From within EndNote Web, you can search freely available library catalogs to add book references to your library. This is best if you're searching for a specific book or author -- searching a broad keyword can give you too many results. Also, the Library of Congress is a good catalog to use (rather than the ODU Catalog).
To add references from library databases to your EndNote Web library, you will need to begin with the library's website.
Some databases (EBSCOhost) will have a specific option for exporting references to EndNote Web. Use this option, and then find your references in EndNote Web under "My References / Unfiled"
Other databases will require you to save/download/export references to an RIS or TXT file. Once you have this file saved, go back to EndNote Web.
Remember to always proofread your references for accuracy!
