Guidance on using EndNote software at the University of Adelaide

Installing EndNote on a University computer

All University desktop computers should already have EndNote installed. However, if yours does not, or if you want to upgrade to the latest version:

For Windows EndNote can be accessed and installed from the Software Center.

For Macs EndNote can be accessed and installed through the Mac OS guides.

Installing EndNote on a personal computer

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 Information Technology and Digital Services (ITDS) webpage, Software for Students

  • Login and follow the instructions for downloading to a University or personal computer..
  • If you are unable to login, contact the ITDS Help desk - Ph 8313 3000
  • Please read the instructions - if you are asked for a licence code during installation the process has not been followed correctly.

Which version of EndNote should I use?

Upgrading to a new version of EndNote

Work computer: simply install the new version of EndNote from the Software Centre (Windows) or Mac Self Service.

Home computer/laptop: You will need to save your library and save any customised files, e.g. output styles.. Then uninstall the previous version of EndNote and install the new version. Your library will be opened with the new version of EndNote. You can now add the customised styles into your EndNote program. Alternately you can save your customised files into My Documents - EndNote - Styles/Filters/Connection Files (individual folders). Either way you will be able to use these files from within EndNote.
