Getting started

What is EndNote?

EndNote is a tool for managing references and bibliographies. Use EndNote to:

  • Create a personal library to collect, store and manage references and full text documents
  • Search and retrieve references from databases
  • Insert in-text citations and create reference lists in your chosen referencing style
  • Share references or entire library with others

Download EndNote

Download EndNote from the University's software download site to ensure your EndNote is within the UON subscription.   

  • Compatibility and system requirements - check the EndNote website
  • EndNote updates - within EndNote via Help > Check for Updates

Please Note:

  • Before upgrading, back up your EndNote libraries and the .DATA folder, and uninstall earlier versions of EndNote​.
  • To avoid compatibility issues, do not upgrade your EndNote or computer OS without checking system requirements first.
