To maximum EndNote's potential, use EndNote in both its Desktop and Online forms. Here are a few things to remember:
1. Access PubMed from the Libraries’ website and perform your search
2. Click the checkboxes next to the references you want import into EndNote (if you want to select all search results, don't check any boxes)
3. Click the “Send to” button and select “Citation Manager”
4. Choose your selection from the drop-down menu, then "Create file".
5. Go to EndNote Online
6. Click the "Collect" tab, then click "Import References"
7. Browse your computer and select the text file you wish to import
8. Select “PubMed” for “Import Option”
9. Select a group to import the references
10. Click "Import"
1. Access Scopus from the Libraries’ website and perform your search
2. Click the check boxes next to the references you want import into EndNote Online

What is Cite While You Write (CWYW)?
How do I get Cite While You Write (CWYW)?
1. Go to EndNote Online
2. Click "Downloads"
3. Install appropriate version of CWYW
Use EndNote Online to share group references with other people.
2. Click "Start sharing this group"
3. Add the emails of those with whom you would like to share the group.
Once you apply changes, the person with whom you shared the group will see the references in their EndNote Online account (and also in their EndNote Desktop if they have their Desktop and Online accounts synced).
This is what the shared group permissions should look like from the view-point of the person sharing the group.
If you have EndNote Desktop, make sure you sync the Desktop version with EndNote Online prior to sharing groups.
If you would like to use references from a group that someone else has shared with you, follow these steps in order for them to be findable in Microsoft Word.
You may have to close and reopen Microsoft Word for the citations to appear when you search in Find Citation.
