Step 3: Checking Styles & References
Step 5: Managing your Endnote Library
NOTE: Your EndNote library is independent of the EndNote program, the same way a Word document is independent of the Word program. When you create a library, a Library file (.enl), and a data folder (.Data ) are created. The .enl file and .Data folder need to be in the same folder location, with the same name, for your Library to work.
EndNote X9 gives you a range of options to layout your library.
Depending on how big your screen is, you can choose the REFERENCE PANEL to sit on the right side of your reference library (good for wide screens), or you can choose to have it on the bottom of your screen underneath your reference library (better for smaller screens and laptops).
Have a go at changing the layout in your newly created library.
