Endnote X9 and EndNote Online: Home

This guide will assist you with downloading and using the latest version of Endnote.


EndNote is a reference management program which can automate much of the work of organizing and formatting citations and bibliographies. This guide is for the previous version, EndNote X9.

The current version is EndNote 20--both are available and supported through HPU Libraries. The use and features are similar--most of the differences are in the look and feel.

What is Endnote?

You can use EndNote to:

1. Import references directly from article databases

2. Pull reference information from stored PDFs

3. Access references from anywhere using EndNote Online

4. Capture references for a webpage with the push of a button

5. Store your article PDFs and other relevant files

6. Highlight and annotate directly onto PDFs

7. Organize your research into libraries and groups

8. Collaborate by sharing libraries and groups with others

9. Output bibliographies in over 6,000 different styles

10. Embed quick citation tools into Microsoft Word, and more!

EndNote is available free of charge to HPU students, faculty and staff.

What is EndNote Online?

Endnote has two interfaces--a downloadable desktop program and an online "cloud-based" library. Set them up to synchronize, maximizing access to your library across locations and devices.

Most of the content on this guide applies to using the desktop version of Endnote. For instructions specific to the cloud-based version, click the tab for EndNote Online.
