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. The latest version--X9--has added several features not present in X8, including four new reference types for citing social media, enhanced sharing capabilities which allow you to share both entire libraries and individual groups, and a "manuscript matching" feature which suggests appropriate journals for your manuscript.

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

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.
