If you wish to keep your references in the longer term, it is important that you take action before you graduate or leave the University. It may not be possible to retrieve or transfer them once you no longer have access to your University computer or network account.
The University's EndNote licence only allows the software to be installed on University owned computers. If you no longer have access to a University of Stirling machine and network account you may use one of the following methods to retain access to your references and PDFs:
University of Stirling staff and students have access to a 'premium' level of EndNote Online access which has no limit on the number of references or file attachments and access to 3,300+ referencing styles. Retain premium level access for a minimum of one year after you leave the University by authenticating your EndNote Online just before you leave (see instructions below).
At the end of your premium access period your account will revert to EndNote Basic. EndNote Basic allows up to 50,000 references, 2GB of file attachments and 21 referencing styles.
If you have a personal account for Web of Science you can use this to access EndNote Online - there is no need to register again for EndNote..
To get an EndNote Online account:
EndNote Online can be accessed at any time at http://www.myendnoteweb.com.

If you have EndNote on another computer (e.g. if you have purchased a licence or are moving to another University which has EndNote) use the Compressed Library backup feature.
