**As a result of AU's current financial situation and after careful consideration of usage, we are canceling our subscription to EndNote Desktop and it will no longer be valid as of May 14, 2021.

The library support team is ready to assist faculty members and students in learning about other citations management programs, such as EndNote Basic, Mendeley, or Zotero. These are often considered to be easier to use than EndNote Desktop, and they have the capabilities that most EndNote Desktop users require. In addition, by using a free program, students will be able to access their citations after they graduate.
EndNote X7 introduced a new sharing mode and EndNote X8 and X9 expand on it:
New in X9:
If you do not already have an EndNote Online (formerly called EndNote Web or Basic) account, go to EDIT>PREFERENCES>ENABLE SYNC and register for a free account to start sharing.
To sync go to TOOLS>SYNC or use the Sync Button.
Once the library is synced, go to FILE>SHARE and enter the email of users you wish to invite to share your library or use the Share Button. They will receive an email and instructions. All users must be running X7 or X8. Use HELP>CHECK FOR UPDATES to confirm you are running the latest version of EndNote.
