EndNote: Welcome

Using EndNote to manage your bibliographic information.


What is EndNote?

EndNote is software for storing and managing bibliographic references. You can create your own EndNote library and manually add references or import them from databases.  EndNote works with Microsoft Word and other word processing programs to create citations and bibliographies in a citation style of your choice.

 Installing EndNote

The University of Adelaide has a site licence so the EndNote software is available to staff and students on a work and home computer/laptop. There are versions for a Mac or PC.

You can get the software from the University's Technology Services.

  • Login and follow the instructions for downloading to a University or personal computer.
  • If you are unable to login, contact the ITS Help desk - Ph 8313 3000 
  • N.B. Please read the instructions - if you are asked for a licence code during installation - you have not done it correctly.

Which version of EndNote should I use?

The latest desktop version of EndNote for a Mac and PC is X7. All versions of EndNote from 9 onwards are compatible.  EndNote libraries can be opened using a Mac or PC.

EndNote Online is a version of EndNote in which references are stored on the EndNote website not on your own computer.  It can be used for sharing references with colleagues or for when you are away from your desktop. EndNote X7 desktop will sync with your EndNote Online library.

Updates and Changes

Find Full Text - Update to OpenUrl Path

The old OpenUrl Path link, which facilitates EndNote's "Find Full Text" feature, is no longer valid. Please use this new link instead:

OpenURL Path:

To update your OpenURL Path, go to Edit --> Preferences --> Find Full Text. Copy and paste the new link in the appropriate field, save and close.
