Creating an Account Using EndNote Online

An EndNote Online account allows you to back up your library to the EndNote cloud server. This provides a way to retrieve references if your computer is lost or fails, as well as providing remote access in case you're working on a computer other than your own. Creating an EndNote account is easy and free, even after you leave UTSA.

EndNote online works best as a back up for your EndNote library. Your EndNote online account will not have all the same functionality as the EndNote application you downloaded onto your device.
