EndNote uwe process when editing a document that was created by another person

At my work we are still using version X4. I would like to know what the correct process is for making edits to a document that has a bibliography created with EndNote when you don’t have the library. I usually open the document and export the traveling library so that I have a clean library to work with which has all the current bibliography sources in it. I then add references to the new library that I want to include in my document. However, I have learned that people in my group just open up the document they are going to edit and then use a library that contains references from their current literature search and not what is currently in the document that they will be adding to. Is there a proper way to make edits to a word docment that you may not have worked on before and don’t have the original library?

Thank you,


With EndNote X4, your process is the best way to go. Keep in mind that Library Sharing will be available starting tomorrow with an update to EndNote X7:
