2 libraries, 1 document how to merge?

[ Edited ]

I have been working collaboratively on a document and one of the people I am working with has created a new library and added nearly a hundred new refs to the document. As a result I now have to endnote libraries (endnote X) and one Word Doc. What is the best way to merge these into one library so that I don't have to re-enter all the citations he has put in?????

 

Thanks in advance

 

Chris

Re: 2 libraries, 1 document how to merge?

The easiest options are (1) generate a new traveling library every time you pass the document back and forth; (2) Keep two libraries.  the second option is the preferred method for many of my reasearchers.  For the latter, each collaborator needs to make sure she/he passes on the most current library (including associated .data subfolder). I have instructions for these options at http://chemistry.library.wisc.edu/writing/endnote.html#collaborative-writing.
