EndNote Online (formerly EndNote Web) is a "cloud" version of EndNote. While anyone can sign up to a free "EndNote Basic" account with a very limited number of styles (20) and searchable databases (5), members of Trinity College Dublin can sign up for an enhanced, customised EndNote Online account using a PC on campus or a laptop connected to our Wi-Fi. The enhanced version can then be accessed from any location both on and off campus; logging in on campus even after you have registered for a "basic" account should upgrade it to the Trinity version.
The customised Trinity version has non-working database searches stripped out, TCD-specfic reference styles added (in addition to thousands of others), and the filter to make records from Stella Search importable included.
Unlike the normal EndNote Desktop program, the enhanced version of EndNote Online can be used on personal PCs free-of-charge as part of the Library's licence arrangement. The software is therefore particularly recommended for use by undergraduate, Diploma and taught Masters students, who have generally not been provided with a Trinity College Dublin PC.
Enhanced accounts set up in this way are valid for 12 months from the login date, before reverting to the free EndNote Basic version with less features. The above access is controlled by the distributors of EndNote and the Library cannot be held responsible if they change access or conditions without notice. The 12-month period is reset by logging into EndNote Online from the College domain (i.e., a PC on campus or a laptop connected to our Wi-Fi). This is important if the user is leaving Trinity College Dublin; users can theoretically gain another 12 months of enhanced access from other PCs by doing this before they leave.
