EndNote X9 is available for download from:

Once installed you need to:

Create Your Library (create a folder that all your references are saved to):

  • Open EndNote
  • In the EndNote menu, select File then New
  • Give your library a name (defaults to My EndNote Library) and choose where to save it on your computer

Please note: we recommend creating a single EndNote Library rather than multiple ones to avoid issues with the write and cite functions
