• Organize your library using groups to categorize references by project, subject, or anything else you choose—and the same reference can be in as many groups as you want.

• Sync your EndNote references and groups across multiple computers, share references with others, track who has made changes to references in shared libraries and when they were made, and access your references from almost anywhere with any Internet browser by logging into your EndNote online account at
