About EndNote


EndNote is a database program for managing bibliographic citations. [EndNote 20 Requires Mac OS 10.14X or higher to run.]

  • It automates much of the work of organizing and formatting citations and bibliographies in your writing.
  • EndNote can connect to online sources such as library catalogs and article databases, output results in over 1,000 different bibliographic styles, and more.
  • There are two versions of EndNote -- a standalone desktop program, and EndNote Online/Web, a cloud-based version. If you want to use both, they can be synced so that you have the same references in both places.

This guide is a quick reference to some of EndNote's frequently used features.

For EndNote X9 Users

Clarivate has an EndNote X9 guide with pretty much everything you need to know about how to use the program.
