Organize references

EndNote uses Groups to organize references.  You can have up to 5,000 groups in EndNote Online. 

If you don't assign references to a group when you add them to your library, they will be placed in Unfiled.

To create a group:

  1. On the My References screen, select Unfiled.
  2. Now select the boxes for the references you want, then select Add to group...
  3. Select New group from the drop-down menu and enter a name for the group.
  4. The references were moved to your newly created group.
