To e-mail your EndNote Library, the Library and Data file must both be attached. The best way to do this is to compress your library and e-mail it.

1) Open your EndNote Library open

2) Go to “File” and choose “Compressed Library”.   A box will pop up. 

3) Change the “Create” option to the “Create & E-mail” option.  You also have the choice of sending the library with or without file attachments.  If you have more than a hundred PDFs, the process may be slow or unwieldy, so you may wish to send the library without the attachments.

4) Select “Next.”   You will then be asked to save the compressed version of the library.  You can leave the file name as is or change it.  Then click “save”, and your Microsoft Outlook will automatically open a blank e-mail for you with the compressed EndNote Library already attached.  

Please note that the person on the other end will need to have EndNote on their computer in order to open the library.  They will need to double-click on the attached compressed library and it will open in EndNote. They should then go to file, save as and save the library.
